should I get another Advent house or something else?

Pulled out the advent house last night and DS5 (2 1/2) is going nuts for it. he loves the doors, putting stuff in them (I haven't filled them yet) and opening and shutting them. I don't want to dampen his enthusiasm, but I plan on filling it for he and the older boys (everyone takes turns). I also don't want to put it where no one can reach it. And it's like 2 feet tall. SO....I know he likes things like this so should I just get him a small one for himself to put his little animals and other things in (for year round) or is there a toy out there like this? Not a doll house, bc he has a nice wooden barn and I am looking for something with doors and cubbies. Also, if you rec an advent house, links for cheap ones? I got this one at costco years ago...
TIA!!

thanks! I actually considered both of those last year for Christmas but never got them. I am hoping to find one with way more doors (and I like the various sizes in the advent house). but the doorbell house...I could ask for that as a gift for him when the g-parents ask.

what about a small storage chest (like for nuts and bolts)? Lots of little drawers and storage ares... Like this one (they sell them at Home Depot and Lowes for cheaper):
