Hi,  :sweet:

That was my first try to create an elven tree house. And I hope you like it.

I was inspired by Lothlorien (LotR) and thought, ok - maybe it is possible to build the large stairs. And that is the result:

It was for me a difficult job. The stairs are not very stable and therefore is the only way to create these stairs, if you put step by step multiple bricks together on the stairs. I hope you know what I mean.

I added this MOC with some little details. I hope you have fun with the following pictures. And maybe you will discover all details.   :grin:

Oh wow, wow, wow, truly, truly beautiful work Elander  *oh2*

Love it, the *only* thing I think it could be improved, IMHO, is the amount of foliage, which I would add a bit more.

Other than that, wow  :thumbup:

Nice work!

However I would use way more green.It looks a little like somebody cut all the smaller branches and the leaves off. It feels a little "naked". More green and it would be perfect imo.

Very nice build here!  It definitely has an Elven feel to it, and the massive curved staircase adds a very unblocky(not made of Lego) look to it.

Very impressive stairs!  They are definitively the highlight of the set.  I also think it looks very elvish.  
My only comment would be that the tree itself might be a bit small (especially on the top) - there seems to be more stairs than tree.

Nevertheless, the overall look is gorgeous!  Well done!

What a wonderful build! I love the details and the color combinations! Was it difficult to keep the tree balanced?
May the Brick be with you!

Hi,  :classic:

Thanks for your comments.  :thumbup:

I put now all my green foliage into the tree. I hope it looks so better.

The tree bole is stable, but the stairs are a bit breakable.

A lovely Tree dwelling.

If you could double the height or maybe just add a third more, on top of the tree and add some more foliage at the top of this, it would be truely wonderful.  :thumbup:
