Corner town house
Posted 24 December 2011 - 11:31 PM
I finally found the courage to present my latest building to a wider community. It's a fictional house, based on the round corner, which made the build a bit more complicated. The building took me 2 months and a half, mainly due to lack of time, but partly also due to lack of experience and lack of planning in advance.
The back of the house is rather boring with only a chimney and a window.
The house can be divided in 4 stacking modules (ground floor, first floor, second floor and the roof).
All of them are furnished.
Some of my favourite details from the inside are:
the dining table in the kitchen...
...the coffee table in the living room...
...and the reading corner under the stairs on the first floor...
...with a mirror above the sink and a toilet...
...the wardrobe in the bedroom...
...and a chestdrawer in the bedroom...
...and a small balcony on top floor, where one can relax with a cup of good morning tea with a view of the area.
More images of the details can be found at my Flickr, Brickshelf or MOC Pages account.

Seen from the outside, the building is also quite unique. It's dosn't look like something you've borrowed from anywhere. And I mean that as a compliment! The structure and "life" of the facade is very original, and has nice details. In my opinion, it lacks the final 5-10% of detailing on the outside (especially the roof-section), to bring it as high quality as the inside. But nice build!

@ everyone: Thanks for these very nice comments! The thing is, I've been following the build of the house for weeks, and in the end, it doesn't seem so great at all. I'm glad you like it.

Looking through the pics I noticed the wonderful clock. Are those original or custom stickers? And which set did they come from, if they're from Lego?
And let me repeat: Your interiors are superb. I try to cram as much detail into my own buildings as possible, but the quality of that furniture you're building is just... wow! Love the yellow-tan house and the police station as well, and again, particularly the interiors.

Your interiors are wonderful, very detailed, over the top great!
Your window detail is wonderful, very carefully planned and executed.
I really like the rooftop detail as well.
I also really like some of your other constructions particularly the house you made from the MMV 10193 set and your reconstruction of the Fire Brigade.
I was looking the other day and I saw a particularly funny bathroom vignette, one most couples can identify with, but after I told my wife and went back to look for it, I could not find it. Is it gone?
I hope to see many more of your MOCs and MODs in the future!

Get organized and build more is my motto for 2013!
