I've got to add my voice to the chorus.  This is an amazing piece.  This, more than any giant castles or realistically-working Technic machinery, is the kind of thing I show my wife when I'm talking about art being made with Lego.

Thank you all for your very encouraging and supportive comments!
One of the things I really hoped to capture was the sense of wind and realism. From what you all are saying, it appears as though I did that. Thank you all! :sweet:

Wow, those trees turn it into something exceptional! Living near palms trees like that, the shape you've given them implies so much motion, it's spot on. Fantastic job.

Very well done MOC. The house looks very realistic the way it's damaged.

Also does anybody know what the little "Indexed" title up on the original post means? I'm still sorta new here.,

It means one of the moderators has added this thread to the Moc index, to allow it to be easily found in the future.

You are correct Peterab.  This MOC can be found in the Building and Town MOC Index.  I'm still working on updating the index with everyone else's creations. :blush:

Sorry to bump this up to the top, but I've seen this outstanding MOC only now!  :tongue:
The idea of blowing wind is incredible: the waves and the trees are a crazy creation ...the house with broken windows absolutely real!  :wub:
This MOC is made by a genious!  :laugh:
