I know this isn't quite winter village standard but I started building with this competition in mind so I thought I should at least post my entry. If it's a step too far in terms of size/pieces I completely understand.

Fantastic B&B  'tiberium_blue'! Very detailed work, I love the wood interior. The exterior is very elegant as well. I think this should do very well in the contest, I love it! Great work and good luck  Posted Image

That's absolutely fantastic. Love the exterior. Love the detail. Love the overall effect.

One of the best I've seen, and the use of those pieces for the lower walls :drool: Really one of my favorites

This bad and breakfast looks fantastic! It is not completely in line with other Winter Village sets, but it's definitely the crown of the village. The bottom walls (stone work) looks amazing. Am I correct in believing the walls were made of technic bricks?
And the interior's details are just as great as the front of the building. My favourite details is the desk chair in the child's bedroom and the raised bed.

A work of beauty - very impressive.  I like it a lot and might be slightly green now...

oh my goodness this is beautiful!
As an AFOL I say this is pure genius, as a participant in this competition I say I don't stand a chance against this. I guess the mods will decide but I honestly think you pushed this too far. Don't get me wrong, your model is absolutely great and belong in the Lego hall of fame but IMO it's out of the contest scope.

Although this is one of the more beautiful creations I've seen, this would not qualify for the contest. Sorry. It is definitely out of the Winter Village scale. It looks like you anticipated that, which makes me feel a little better. I'm very sorry, anyway, that you can't enter with this entry. Please feel free to build a Winter Village scale version or other entry! You have until the 30th. And thank you for sharing your amazing creation with us. :thumbup:

This is so grand and spectacular that I feel it's almost a bit unfair to the other, 'normal' entries to allow it into the contest. And that is a big compliment! Your signature use of the small Technic liftarms gives the building a unique look, and in combination with the 'woodwork' the result is amazing. The interior details are top notch, too.

Is that a custom torso on the minifig on the slead (nice use of the minifig skates, by the way)?

EDIT: I see the contest admins agreed. A shame, in a way, but your MOC is simply too great :)

No problem, I knew early on it was going to be too big but it was fun to build regardless.

Yes, the majority are 1x2 liftarms with axle holes for stability.

It's from the spongebob superheroes set.


Thanks for your comments everyone. :)

This is really quite nice and very unique in terms of what I have seen as typical Town type onstruction.  I hope you have time to build another version that is smaller and more in line with the contest rules.  I believe if you did that your B&B would be a very strong contender.

I really like the use of Technic elements with studded elements!

Less spending, more building is my plan for 2012!
Get organized and build more is my plan for 2013!
Just build more is my plan for 2014! (Good luck with that!)
Neatness counts!

Thanks for understanding. I think it would really sweep the voting too. It's beautiful and people tend to vote for the bigger builds, especially one so detailed and unique. That's one of the reasons for the rule in the first place, to keep a level playing field.

What a beauty. If I didn't have to work, I'd probably just stare at these photos all day.

Excellent work! What is the room depth may I ask? I really want to make a building thats open at the back but was concerned if it was too deep there would not be enough light coming through from the front and wouldn't look great. I think this is pitched perfectly and thats the effect I want!

This is a beautiful B&B. I love the detail, especially the stone work. I may have to borrow that sometime. It looks very much texturized. The snowy details work well too. And then, the fact you can access everything on the inside helps bunches for playability.

Keep up the great builds.

Great build.  Love the stone technique which I have seen from you before.  To those who haven't, check out t_b's monestary in his flickr photo stream.  I am going to use those lift arms for sure in my next build.
