For the most curious among you, here is the complete Mountain Lodge. You'll understand immediately why I couldn't enter the "Expand the Winter Village III" Contest with the whole thing: it's too big. Actually, I started to build only the front part of the lodge (the one you saw in the contest), then I got the idea to add the cellar and then the hill around it, then the back and then the whole building process got out of my hand and this is the final result.
There's also another reason why I couldn't enter the contest with the whole lodge: as you can see, there are some not-Lego parts, like the deer's antlers on the wall, the bear trap in the snow, and on the inside there's a Lifelites lighting.
I hope you enjoy the full version, as you enjoyed the part that won the contest.

:wub:  this  is fantastic. The interior and exterior are both fantastic. The addition of elevation really makes this an inspiration model for me as the WV theme is a household favorite here.

I don't think I noticed the pearl gold drainpipes last time you posted this. They look really good! This complete mountain lodge is beautiful - I like that you can't tell there's anything underneath the snow, but there is. Great job!

Amazing work again! The full house is even better than the contest one. You've done a great job here and I would like to see more ^^! Do you have more photos of the back part of the lodge?

Another fantastic work. Even in the larger size, the cottage still looks sweet. I like the interior details the most (like the round cheese and meat in the basement, kitchen utensils on the wall and all the wooden furniture), you put really much effort in it, despite them being hard to notice. It's very a cozy place for winter holidays.

What a great surprise to demonstrate just how much Winter Village places can be adapted!  Well, now you have to take my reservation :wink:

The cellar is so unexpected.  The back balcony is exactly in keeping with that style of Lodge too.  Great lighting, thanks for sharing!

This is amazing!  I thought the original was great, but the additions are just over the top great!  I don't know where to start... The cellar is quite nice, as are many other details. If I had to point to one it would have to be he stone work on the walls, so much realism.  This takes the WV series to the maxium! What I would like for the actual WV.

Thanks for sharing this with us,

Maybe because the pictures I posted before were taken from a certain angle that didn’t allow to notice the drainpipes properly… In fact, if I wanted to show all the details, I would have to taken I don’t know how many pictures!! Thank you for your comment!

I think you got the point: I am so short of room in my house, that I decided, since the end of my Dark Ages, to build little MOCs, but full of details, even if they are almost hidden. And this is a typical example, and, surely, the best one so far, in my opinion.

With pleasure! I hope you realized that there’s no bathroom in the lodge (I confess: this is my biggest regret!!), so you’ll have to make the best of it…
