Veronica's Neighbourhood

After months of thinking, weeks of planning, days of deciding, hours of drawing, now I'm finally ready to unveil my plans to the world. It's not easy when you're the architect, landscaper and contractor all roll into one but I'm too much of a DIY person and a picky one at that for anyone else to be able to tolerate me.
So, with no further ado, here is my blueprint unrolled...

Did I hear gasps of horror? Ah, okay, maybe it's a little crude but hey, I did my best ^.^ Oh, you have no idea what you just saw? Alright, here's another picture to give you a better idea:

Does it make more sense now? Guess I should provide more information. Well, I other from the very obvious fact that I'll using all charts by Elizabeth's Designs, my neighbourhood will be a Home Sweet Home Village with its own church/graveyard, lighthouse, beach, fields, hills and forests along with a gardener, a beekeeper and a shepherd among others as residents. I'm giving it that name because on each square, just like on my blueprint, I'll be adding various quotes on home.
At the moment, I'm slowly stocking up on my building materials. I like the fact that beads, charms and specialty stitches are incorporated into the designs. I'm gonna have so much fun with em. Looking forward to when the actual construction starts.
Thoughts, ideas and suggestions appreciated.

It's going to be great Veronica! I have most of these patterns too but haven't stitched them. I just ordered "Old Stone Church" last week to use in my neighborhood - love the graveyard in it. Would you like to come over and plan my neighborhood for me? :) You did a great job.
