Just to make sure that I dont forget & miss the Grand Prize, I usually speed up the last few tasks by spending LPS. Better spend than to be sorry :-).
Usually works but for this event, you had to wait for each day to get the tasks. And if a real life emergency or special plans made you miss the whole day, you were out of luck. There was no leeway at all.
After playing this game since the first year, I grew not to trust the developers to make the events easy or even attainable without spending LPs or SPs. So in between events I play the game and stock pile LPs and SPs for life interruptions or impossible events. I used between 30 and 40 on this event, a lot on the last day because I realized that I would not complete it in time if I didn't. With some grinding you can be ready for the next event. Sorry you didn't make it this time.
I think for this event it wasn't a matter of SKatF not having the LPs to complete the event. SKatF is a long time player and for sure has plenty of LPs/SPs stocked up in that case. The problem with these types of quests is that you could be on top of it the entire time but because of something else entirely happening in RL just not be able to get to the game in that last 24 hours to even be able to use LP to speed through the quest. It's beyond frustrating.

Exactly. If you can't check in on the final day of the event for any reason, you miss out, regardless of being caught up until then and having LP, SP, and Time Extensions stockpiled.

The advice about stockpiling SP and LP between event is good, however.

I agree the timing was tight on this quest, I used lp’s to skip through the whole last day just to make sure I won the chalet, not that I have an empty lot to put it on XD.

Just a reminder or an FYI for those who don’t know yet:

The open loft area in the Snow Chalet is actually an item that can be moved an used in another house. It’s called Landing Blonde and can be found in the Stairs tab after removing it from the chalet. To select it go to the second floor in build mode and tap anywhere in the open area.

I don't know if it has been answered yet, but how do you put the landing blonde back after you accidentally moved it to inventory. I ended up with a second floor in my chalet. I tried deleting the room and start from scratch but it won't let me add it back so I can have my loft back. Can someone please help?

Have a look at that topic: viewtopic.php?p=67378#p67288
There are descriptions on how to place the Landing.
