Hello everyone! I've just completed my largest model yet: a scale version (approximately 1ft to 1 stud) of Frank Lloyd Wright's "Thomas P. Hardy House". This is a house in Racine, WI, built in 1905 for the mayor of Racine, built in the Prairie School.
It measures 128 by 112 studs. Quite a transportation challenge! This is actually my second attempt at this house - my first try did not have an accurate backside, and was all one piece. This newer version has an accurate slope in the back yard (the real house is on a hill overlooking Lake Michigan), and is modular for easy transport - It separates into 14 pieces, plus the 14 trees, lamppost, and telephone pole.
The fall leaves are from the Alt Bricks store on Bricklink. I think they're quite striking!
If you want a chance to see it in person, I've currently got 2 shows planned for it:
- KLUG has a show at the Kenosha Public Library Southwest branch, May 19-20.
- Brickworld Chicago 2012, with the KLUG group tables.
