This is amazingly beautiful Posted Image, I especially like the rainpipe, the use of the "brick" bricks, and the way you made the roof.
Why exactly aren't you entering the competition with this one ? Posted Image

wow, very nice, I like the color scheme a lot! One question though, which brick did you use to support the front gate? Is it a 2x2 plate modified with one stud?

This is really beautiful. It looks greatly designed unlike some mini modulars which look like a jumble of bricks. It has nice accents and overall a great facade.  :classic:

First of all: Thanks a lot for your kind comments, it's a pleasure!  :classic:

To answer your questions: I got another mini modular moc under construction, I want to participate with.

The contest rules say: Only one entry per member and category. So I decided, not to submit "manor-house"
but the 2nd model, which will hopefully be finished, the next few days before the deadline ends.

Don't know, if it was the right decision - we'll see. :look:

@bramn: You got it! The front gate is supported by 2x2 modified plates with one stud!

Thx again!

Excellent Mini! The windows work very well and SNOTed tiles add a nice texture, I'm sure your second one will be even better  :classic:

I really like this one. In my opinion, mini modulars are very hard to build, and they often seem to suffer from their builder wanting to add too much detail, so they end up looking cluttered. This is just about perfect, and contains a lot of very nice parts usage. I'm very much looking forward to your actual contest entry!

Wow - this is great little MOC. Although saying that, they are extremely difficult to design, so well done on such a detailed model. based on this one, I can't wait to see your competition entry.  :classic:

Nice, I like the creativity on this one like the door and the angled slopes used for the roof. Also the brick-bricks works really well here. :thumbup:

That is a very nice Mini Modular.  :thumbup:

The drainpipe at the back is a great detail.
