I wanted to try to build a modular in my favorite American architectural style, Greek Revival.  I like the cleanness of it and the symmetrical lines.  I tried to incorporate a pediment window, transom windows, and pilasters.

Posted Image

(the cupboard in the upstairs bedroom fell over!)  I wasn't quite sure how to do the pediment, but I did the best I could.  

Downstairs first... the kitchen and dining room on the right.

Living room on the left.

With a hallway in the middle.

And, to the second floor... two bedrooms and a bathroom.

Master bedroom:

Boys' bedroom:
There's a desk with a sword rack above it, backpacks hanging in the corner, clothes cupboard, two beds.

Garden out back...

And, the house between two other modulars...

I took these pictures a while ago (before I'd tweaked my picture-taking system to let in less light), but as I'm disassembling this house, figured I'd better post them at some point!

This is a great entry. The interior is fantastic.  :wub:

The outside is a bit bland compared to the other modulars, but this one is still very unique and simple.  :classic:

Best of luck on the contest.

Great job! I like the architecture, but the interior is definitely the best part! I agree that it is a bit bland compared to the other modulars, but I guess that's what you get from Greek Revival. :thumbup:

Sweet building. The colour scheme looks warm, and it looks cozy. Are you gonna enter it in the contest?

No, this isn't for the contest.  I decided it was too plain and simple for most folks' tastes on here.  I'm working on another building for that... first floor is done!   :classic:

Hahaha, the interior was so good that I thought automatically this must have been for the contest.  :laugh:

Now I really can't wait to see your actual entry.  :tongue:

A very realistic looking house 'slovakiasteph' :thumbup: , wonderfully detailed on the inside :wub: ....cups for spouts on the tub - neat idea ! :wink:
Every room has been dressed just right, except one thing....the loo ! :blush: (I guess one would have to keep their legs cross for a while eh ? :laugh: )
Apart from the missing toilet, it's still a fantastic looking house. :classic:

Your interiors are always top notch, the details you put into your houses are great, and this is no exception. If this were on the shelf, I wouldn't think twice abbot buying it. Brilliant. :thumbup:

I figured if most LEGO houses don't have bathrooms, these LEGO folks wouldn't notice a missing toilet!   :laugh:

Thanks!  I have a lot of fun with the details... and my next project is even more detailed!

Nice little build. I agree that it is bland compared to Modulars, but when you place this building by itself, it is superb. The overall design and feel screams Lego. The interior is really well done as well.

I can't wait to see your official entry!

Its a good house. I like the glass around the front door, but I think the proportions around your windows are off, particularly the front. There is traditionally more wall space below the window than above.

I like the interior of this building a lot. My only little complaint is that the tan part of the facade seems a bit plain when put next to other modulars, but other than that, nice job! :classic:
