Winter Village: Chalet

This was inspired by the park near my parents' house-- there's a chalet open there in the winter, and they have an ice-skating pond, cross-country ski trails, a sledding hill, and a toboggan run. Originally I wanted to make the toboggan run, but it would have been structurally unsound. :grin: Since I'm from Michigan, outdoor sports are practically a lifestyle... we even have people there who like snow! :oh:

So, my winter chalet!

The entire scene

Just the chalet... with a sledding hill off to the left

Inside... a big fireplace, recycled wagon wheel light, hot chocolate, and a seating area where you can watch the sledders!

The sleigh...

And, the horses' stable with a holly and ivy strand. There's a saddle over the fence and two buckets: one for grain, one for water

(Sorry, I haven't been able to get good clear pictures lately... not sure if it's my camera or what. It's even sunny today!)

Very cute chalet, it could have been a little more detailed inside though, although I understand that it has a small interior anyway.

I love the sleigh and stable!!

Nice job, the chalet reminds me of a gingerbread house for some reason and I like your design on the sleigh. :thumbup:

Thanks for your responses, everyone!

HighFlyer, do you have any suggestions on how I can spruce up the interior a bit and still keep a rustic feel?

Very nice, cozy chalet! Nice choice of "extra" elements.

Inside view of sledding hill a good idea, sled on hill interesting.

One horse open sleigh nice, I need to go sing Jingle Bells now ;)

Thanks for your comments! I had a lot of fun with this build!

Any other suggestions? I'm going to try to take new pictures as well if I have time... hopefully I can get some clear ones this time!

I suggest using dark green or dark red for the armchair, and perhaps white for table area.

Also maybe some brown tiles on the floor, making the interior more enticing.

Very cool "old school" style chalet! How many pieces did you use in total?

NIce , all it need is a small fire place and a light brick to give thst warm glowing feeling that this cute shalet gives. I cant help feeling the stable roof is a little low apart from that grat job. Good luck in the contest
