I saw this on eurobricks a couple of weeks ago, and it was what stirred my to try and buy a copy of the set to maybe do something similar.
Having bought one cheaply on ebay I was surprised at how flimsy the original build was. There's hardly anywhere that you can hold it to move it, without pieces breaking off, or it dashing to the floor. A baseplate would have been really helpful... and a desgin more along the lines of this one in the video.
I am amazed that this is only two sets combined as it seems to be a lot more of a solid build even without the movable wall, there seems to be a ton of pieces used in the mountain and interior.
TLG take note!
