I've been building this modular for a little over a week now and it's the first one I've built. Let me just say... modulars use A LOT of bricks! I had to order some extra yellow bricks just to get me through... and a lot of tiles.
All three floors!
I like the first two floors a lot, but I'm least happy with the third-- I need to find some way to add interest/arches up there without it looking so middle eastern, which throws off the architectural balance of the rest of the building. (Okay, so I made up any architectural balance that's here-- I didn't use a specific style). But the top floor doesn't sit right.
Let's head into the first floor... the flower shop.
I don't even like flowers much... have been in a florist twice, I believe. But I needed something cheerful for the dark bley interior, so I thought flowers would work well!
Ah, a customer!
There's a toilet behind the little blue door... forgot to open it to show you.
Moving up to the second floor, the main floor of the apartment which holds a kitchen, dining area, and living room with an open floor plan.
The apartment owners own the whole building, including the flower shop. The woman downstairs just runs the place as the couple who live upstairs both have jobs as well.
Ben has a mate over after work...
The dining room table is made from a recycled crate.
In this picture you can see both of the lights... well, it's really one big unit.
Floor three... the bedroom.
Bed, lamp, artwork... and a plant shelf above the stairs.
The water feature... I had a desk there originally but decided this modern couple needed something special. There's also a dresser and plant.
From the back...
I won't show you the sides and top, but if you're interested, there are pics in my Brickshelf gallery.
Thanks for looking! C&C welcome!
(Coming up next... a Greek Revival modular, and I'm loving the way it's turning out...)
Can a moderator please change the subtitle? It's supposed to say "flower shop"-- didn't even notice that I'd written bookshop!
