Welcome to the town of Stoneford!

Posted Image

So instead of creating Topic after Topic about each of the buildings I make, I am going to start a running thread with my town adding buildings as I go.

I got really interested in this style of building after building my Grand Emporium. So today I will start with my newest building and later add in some of my other buildings that I've done since then.

Welcome to Lightning Hardware Store in town of Stoneford. The hardware store named in Honor of LightningTiger who gave me a few ideas for the interior.

The front of the store

Hello!

What I like most here is the nice effect of inverted arch over the window next to a conventional arch over the door. :classic: I think that it would even look better if you did not fill up the arch over the door with plates but instead left it empty. :classic:

Cheers,

Looks nice 'LCM', but the counter looks a little boring, though your coffee machines are pretty good.....I like the coffee brewer on the far right. :thumbup:

icy brick,

Feel free to use/copy whatever you like. I will try and get a picture of the whole layout later tonight.

So I've made a few improvements to the coffee shop and bank.

To the Coffee Shop we've added some color to the top of the building, also a patio table with umbrella where one of our friendly bike cops have stopped for a cup.

Posted Image

The City Bank

Most banks here in the US have an architectural feature that is used in their feature feel. I've Purple Half Arch above the bank sign giving it a "wave feel" with the white "foam" underneath.

Posted Image

We've repeated this in the teller windows, (which I've added another).

Posted Image

Here I've added a small desk for people to ready their deposits or write their checks so they can be ready when they go to the teller. There is also a small movable railing to keep customers out of the banks "business" area.

Posted Image

Upstairs we've added a swivel chair for the security desk (Still need some more monitors) and a few other chairs in the hallway. Must be a delivery day.

Posted Image

Armed Stoneford Police watch over the delivery truck while the driver is making his delivery.

Posted Image

Enjoy

Comments, Questions, and Critiques always welcome.

Interesting 'LCM', might be a church of some sort judging by the steps at the front and that middle built-up section. :wink:
Well, only you know what it is ! :grin:

I'm going with Lightning Tiger's suggestion. Church or some Middle Eastern looking shop!

Invest in some roads!!

MOD is usually used to describe a Modification to an official set, Like my city Bank

WIP is Work in Progress, Something that is not yet completed.

MOC is My Own Creation.

There's a thread somewhere that lists commonly used Acronyms on the forums if you search a bit for it.


{EDIT} Here's a Link: Eurobricks Acronym Dictionary
