Once the bottom floor modular section is built, we build the upper floor Sitting Room and Bathroom, then the girls Bedroom with Balcony.
Before we build the house modules, bag 1 parts build a heart-shaped pool and a purple Lounger floatie using a new color of 1x4 smooth tile.
The front of the bottom module has a table with drinks using the newish clear posing pieces as drinking straws. The garage door is white, expect for the newly re-colored latch part. The mailbox has a red flag for letting the postal worker know of outgoing mail -- very clever!
With bag 7 parts, the Bathroom gets an Aqua toilet, yet no room for a shower curtain. It's a good thing those windows have "privacy" glass. The front of this first upper section gets more of the new curvy white window frames, flower box, and solar panel. It likely powers the hot-water tank above the shower head.
It's a beautiful and bright house -- especially with the floor-to-wall bay windows 2-stories tall. That curvy detail aspect, with the fan-light windows above -- plus arches -- really gives the builder a lot of architecture to enjoy.
Stephanie's top has back wrap-around detail; Andrea's vest has small fabric tucks. Liz, Donna and Martin all have hard plastic hair.
The new curvy white window piece is called a 3x3 Frame with bow, and has the same arc as a 6x6 round plate, yet takes 1x1 flat glass.
Since there aren't 6x6 round plates in this set, we connect the windows to the Lavender curved plate, then the dark nougat bricks.
Trans brown opal window glass pieces go in the Bathroom wall windows; allowing light in, yet privacy too. As with the 1x4 tile, these appear purple once installed on the house. These first appeared as film reel in Mickey and Minnie.
New parts in Teal are always welcome by me! Here we get Wall 1x6x7 with arch, Round 1x1 brick, 1x2 Log brick (Palisades), and brick with bow 1x8x2 (arch).
Used as a Light-shade in the Sitting room, the 2x2 Final brick is a new color of trans-medium-violet-opal.
Used to create the Drum in the garage is this Wall ½ Circle, 1x2, W/ 4.85 Hole, medium stone grey; only otherwise in Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (2020).

Page 3 of parts; after finishing the build of this 802-piece set, there are at least 44 spare parts (mostly small 1x1 type, including a Teacup, Whisk, Spoon, and both green stems).
Andrea is the final Friend to get a full house and it's similar in architecture to Stephanie's. This makes me think they live in the same HLC neighborhood.
There are a lot of colors for this house -- seven or nine just on the exterior!
When I first read Andrea was getting a house, I imagined it would be modern ... as in Livi's style. At least this is modular, as the very first Friends house for Olivia was; so there are options for re-arranging and adding rooms for a parent's bedroom. Even though Mia's was not modular, it was very "Mia" in style. None of the Friends houses have ever featured a "parents" bedroom. Although I did add one to Emma's.
With so many details, being modular, and its size -- I recommend adding this house on a street with other Friends Houses, or even Creator Modular buildings.
