This is my first post on this forum, so i think it is a bit
convenient to introduce myself:
Jasper Joppe Geers, nice to meet you. I'm 38 years of age,
married to the best wife in the world, and daddy of two
Over the last couple of years i've done my best on my own
street, combined of well known Modular houses, and Moc's
i've invented myself.
Like many of you, i got turned on when some years ago the
Cafe Corner was released. Short time after that i have to had
that Green Grocer really badly, and everything went on linke
The most fun i have with this is the creative ways and puzzles
to get everything daily life back on minifig scale.
At first i started with this bus, to try and find out if i still had
the Lego way of thinking as it was already some decades ago since
i touched my bricks the last time.
This is the first design, although i tweaked it some times afterwards.
Then i thought to start with my first Moc in the Modular House design.
The idea was a local newspaper agency and printing facility.
Basically the plain ground took most of the time to work out, the rest
came much easier. I still have to finish the garage door, and the second
floor, but that's no priority right now. When the rest of the street is done,
i'll take up the plan of further additions to all of the Mocs.
After this one i got hooked on, and went on to work out a restaurant.
I always enjoyed the Gordon Ramsay shows, and one of his restaurants was
a bit of basic idea to me. This one also still needs a lot of interior work done,
the kitchen and wine cellar needs to be done, as the interior on the second
and upper floor.
Then i stopped for a few months to gather enough bricks together to get building
again. This time it had to be a bank. This was the first time i wanted to spend
a bit more time and effort on the interior design as well.
The problem occured that i created my walls some bricks to high, and with some
small speces there's a lot of shadow, so you can't really see much of it.
So i knew that my next Moc had to be a big one, probably my biggest so far.
This time i wanted to create a bike and cycle shop. I had a few of these scooters
from brickforge, and i just wanted to do something with it for a long time, so here it is.
The ground floor consists of a cycle store, and a repair workshop.
The first floor had to be the one where some motorbike's and scooters are on display.
It took me some time to work out the floorand how to fix these bikes nicely,
but it turned out all right in the end. The second floor is some kind of a museum hall,
where a nice collection of vintage bikes could be found. These are not finished yet.
Because of the museum idea, i wanted to give this building some grand appearance,
with a kind of victorian vintage roof on top.
The last Moc so far had to be a post office. I finished just some weeks ago, just when news
started to buzz around about a new modular set from Lego, some Emporium building?
I thought that this was an excellent coïncendence, and therefore decided to create
a corner building in Tan and Yellow colors. Together with Dark tan it all looks really neat
to me. It was really fun to do this one, as this was the first moc i did with enhanced
minifigs. The post office also has a post bicycle and motorbike, along with the 7731
postcar. This one also could use some extra work on the inside. Some plants and buckets
perhaps.. I was thinking of adding a local TV station on the second floor...
And here's the main street so far. I've added some extra pavement spaces, 8 studs wide.
It gave me the opportunity to add some details like a waste bin here and there, phone box,
trees etc. Most of it needs to be fitted in on the other side of the corner as well, but that
has no priority right now.
Please feel free to take a look around in my photobucket map. You'll find many more pics
there with details of everything i've done so far. Hope you like it.
Here's the overall link:

Oh, let me try to upload a pic of the street here:
