OK, Have added the walls to the theater area. Also a surprise "second story". OK, so it doesn't come off but that's the stage's "fly" area.

Posted Image

Behind the scenes you can see the ladder into the theater's fly area and the catwalk.

Posted Image

A "Grand Emporium" inspired skylight over the stage area for natural lighting. Yup. It's a 6-wide version.

Posted Image

and kind of an experiment for the seating in the theater. Not sure if that's going to be the final design. More of a nightclub style of seating.

Made some changes to Lightning Hardware tonight

Moved the back door to the left side of the building

Posted Image

So that I could move things around inside.

We now have a cash register on the counter. Based on the GE set.

Posted Image

The part drawers have moved to the left of the counter to make way for the new paint station.

Posted Image

A new tool rack under the front window to make space for the paint station. (Need to get some coffee stirrers to cut up for the spouts.)

Posted Image

The big tool rack has stayed pretty much in the same place

Very nice town, LCM! :thumbup: Here are my thoughts on each of the buildings:

Lightning Hardware Store: I really like this one;you've incorporated some great details (the sign, the dumpster, the cabinets, etc.). However, I think the sidewalk would look better in a shade of gray.

Coffee Shop: Love the interior on this one. You've really done a great job creating a full coffee shop in a pretty small space. :thumbup: The drive-thru is also a great idea, but you should remove the shutters from the drive-thru window; I don't think I've ever seen a drive-thru that has shutters on its window.

Bank MOD: This one is really fantastic; it gives me a few ideas for modifying the bank myself! :wink: The whole first floor is very nicely done, and the safe is very nice.

Theater: This is a great idea for a building! I love how you implemented the red curtains, catwalk, and seating. :thumbup:

All in all, you've done a great job on your town. Keep going! :sweet:

Excellent MOC's, LegoCityMann! I agree that you need to include some roads in your layout, but the individual buildings are really good. I especially love the hardware store's interior - the designs are great. The MODed bank also has loads of great details, like the sign and desk. Well done, good luck, and thanks for sharing!

All the sidewalks in Stoneford are red with the exception of the custom paving on the Beverage Store. Even the GE will be getting the red treatment very shortly. The coffee shop doesn't have the shutters. I removed them. Those are the old style drive-thru windows that open outwards instead of the newer sliding type.

A lot of thanks on the interior of the Hardware store goes to lightningtiger. He gave me a lot of pointers and ideas for stuff on the interior.

Ah, I see. Looking back on the pictures again I noticed that all the sidewalks are red. I actually think that it looks rather nice in front of some of the buildings like the theater, but it just looks awkward in front of the red hardware store.

Beverage Store/Paper Stand

Here we have the town Benerage store. As you can see the beverage store has a tidy cobblestone sidewalk with a small news stand out front.

Posted Image

Sorry sir, we're all sold out of the tribune today.

Posted Image

This MOC was designed completely because of this Minifig. He's pan handling to get enough for another bottle.

Posted Image

The roof features a large condensor and fan to keep the beverage store nice and cold.

Posted Image

Posted Image

A closeable entry with windows for late night sales. A keypad on the wall for safe entry and security.

Posted Image

A safe and register behind the counter.

Posted Image

A few shots of the rest of the interior.

Posted Image

New selling top shelf Cutty Sark Scotch.

As noted in another thread the Hardware store went thru a major renovation today.
After the it was noted that the Red Storefront with the red sidewalk I made some changes.

We now have a White storefront with Red accents. I'm not 100% on the inverted arch now. That might change.

Posted Image

The back of the store got an addition. The cashiere and employee area is situated here now. The backdoor now opens into the alley in the rear. The Acetylene and Propane tanks have been moved inside the store for refills and there are now gauges indicating the need for refills at the rear.

Posted Image

It also features rooftop access from the employee area.

Posted Image

The ceiling height has been expanded and a shelf added over the cash register.

Posted Image

The front of the store remains unchanged except for the color.

Posted Image

I think the addition of white to areas of the interior really opens the space up and makes if feel a lot larger than it actually is. The extra band of white also helps to draw the eyes up making the space seem larger.

Nope, Keep Guessing. I think I have solved the seating issue in the theater. Going with the seating idea from the Town Plan. Placed my first ever bricklink order. Can you guess what I ordered from the pictures?

Here's the first row installed.

and now you see what sits on top of that Crazy Colored Contraption.

Posted Image

Here it is with the team from Imperial Construction working on the building

Posted Image

Why will you never see the crazy colors?

Posted Image

There's still 1 part coming that will tie this in with the First part of the new MOC.

Meanwhile, I decided to take a visit to my town, where I ran into Shaun, the owner of Lightning Hardware and his Dog. He and I got to discussing knives, I was proudly displaying mine when he said "You call that a knife" and proceeded to put mine to shame.

Is the thing the crane is on the building that's getting constructed ?
You put these up too late for me (but it's worth it :grin: ) . I wish they had yawning emoticons.
