The optimum amount of time you need to create these houses is three days.  but don't let that intimidate you!  the actual time you'll spend in the first two days isn't very much--just some mixing, cutting dough pieces, and baking.  The majority of your time will be spent on decorating.  And that's the really fun part, so be sure to set aside plenty of time for that.  The most important thing to remember is that your basic house should be assembled and completely dry before you start decorating. Follow the Gluten-Free Gingerbread Dough recipe first, before getting started.
