Silo Cottage

20 posts in this topic

Now with updated pictures! In Panoramic View!

This building is a heavily modified Hagrid's Hut.

Most of the buildings in Scarborough are show signs of damage from the attack of the windblade. This small cottage was built from the stub of a Stone silo. The top was finished in rough hewed wood, with a few repairs over time. The people of scarborough are proud of their scars, and out of rememberance of a shared tragedy, do not repair for merely cosmetic reasons. In the front we can see a crane nest for good luck, a post box and some daffodills.....I mean undead vampiric daffodills.....right.

Oh dear, the rat is gone. Perhaps the snake ate it.

The interior has a Grandfather clock (modified Monster fighter design)

A bed and some shelves (Inspired by Haunted House & harry potter sets)

Downstairs we have a rotating fireplace. Because it makes more sense for the fire to face the breakfast nook, but it was unviewable under those conditions.

C&C welcome!

Nice MOC! You have some great elements here. The crane and nest, chimney smoke, and the roofs are all well done! :thumbup:

Nice Moc!

The bed is awesome, and the bird looks cool too.

Just wondering, about how long did it take to put all the smoke together?

I like it! Looks really old and shabby! :classic: A lot of nice details to look at aswell! :thumbup: The smoke is great!

I do think that your moc deserves better photos though. After all the work you put down into the building, I do think it deserves better photos.

A great addition to Scarbourough, indeed. As others have said, the crane and the smoke are excellent, but what I like the most is the slightly run-down appearance it has that goes very well with your story. Also, nice variations on those existing designs, they fit in really well :thumbup:

Thanks for your compliments!

@Garmadon When I sorted my collection, I often attached pieces together. I just happened to to notice that those bar with claw pieces looked a bit like smoke. Plus I don't have any white ice cream pieces. So it took me no time or 10 days to put together the smoke.

@DeGothia I was in a hurry to get this up as soon as possible, so I din't have time to wait for decent sunlight, especially in november! But, I haven't taken the cottage down yet, so when I get a chance I will take better pictures.

@Abu Dun & DeGothia I'm glad you like the shabbyness, I took some inspiration from the buildings in the Anime "Tweeny Witches"

Whoops! I forgot to add one of the photos. I've added it now. I'll also update it when I get some better pics.

Thought you might have forgotten the fireplace, very interesting how you made it swivel, I know how hard turning a fireplace can be! Nice detail!

Looks even better like this, nice background! I like the door and the wood shed, :thumbup: for re-taking photos (and for keeping it built that long! :grin: ) Great job, looks like quite a nice nocturnian residence!

That's a really good brick-built bird! But, what's with the mailbox? Seems a bit odd for a castle-era MOC :dwacko:

I didn't really realize that that was smoke. Now that I see it, that is some sweet smoke! Wonderful build!

@everyone, thanks for the complements. They encourage me to build more.

Part of it is becuase I needed a detail there, but part of it is because I think of my town of Scarbourough as a place that tries out lots of new ideas beacuse of lots of refugees and mercenaries coming through the town. The insane wizard also includes a few ideas.

Perhaps it does stand out too much. Ideally it would be in dark red. Yellow seems a little to bright.
