My dear Dad has asked me to make one for a friend, I can't even find any pics of one made out of sugarpaste.
I don't have a lot of experience with sculpting or a full set of suggestions for you, but maybe start the house itself by carving down a block of florist foam and wrapping it in cling wrap. Then wrap gp around the block, maybe securing the top with some toothpicks or pins while it dries?
or do they want a Dutch windmill?

Nice job! I'll bet he was pleased. Your little wooden shoes are adorable.
It's wonderful. If that's on short notice, I'd love to see what you do with more time!
