looking for ideas: one floor modular

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have nothing to present here, but I have a bit of bricker's block, same as writer's block but in front of tiny bins full of lego parts :)

I have space left in my train+town layout for a 16 by 32 base and building, facing the main (and only) street of my town.

I had an 'emergency services station' there, part police, part fire station, but I've just dismantled it: too tall.

I want a short building -- max height should be 13 bricks from base plate.

The back faces a straight railroad, the front faces a main street.

The back needs to look good, because I'll be looking at that most of the time :)

It has to be short, because of perspective : I want to be able to see well the fa├žades and details of the modular buildings on the other side of the street.

Next to it there's a station and a small freight loading dock, so no more of those :)


I saw the small 16x16 adorable toy store posted this week, it's really neat.

I initially wanted to build a store / exposition center for speed champions cars, but they're really too large for the space.

What would you build?

A one story bank? A library? A rambler i.e. one story house? A post office?

How about a small old school garage? The type you see in early color movies? The front is mainly the car door, and inside you could have tools and maybe a car lift.

In the french countryside (among other places) we still see things like these:


I imagine they must have looked great when new

What about a car showroom, with a lot of glassvwalls?

So you can enjoy the newest models for sale from the back as well as from the front.

Thinking about what is normally next to stations, what about a coffee shop, newsagent or small supermarket? The new supermarket suitcase has has some great printed grocery pieces.
