Grimm Gables is the Mississippi's most mysterious old house heap, fashioned from whatever cardboard, crafting debris, and garbage you can gather. Boasting enchanting views of the river and a new adventure in every bureau, armoire, and cupboard, we know you’ll be quite comfortable here. And what an adventure it will be! Each week, we'll be exploring a new room of Grimm Gables in a developing ten-chapter story that is part DIY craft project, part storybook, and part mystery. Every Sunday at 7PMish, a new chapter will be released for $5.99, bursting with graphics, characters, DIY projects, and stories to fill the rooms of this moldy manse. Be prepared for a few surprises along the way...
