Hello everyone!
After a constructive stop of a couple of months at the beginning of the year I decided to try my hand at building a medieval mill.

I like to think of this mill set in the Middle Ages, inhabited by a simple family that lived in an era where today's technology did not exist yet, without cell phones, computers and the Internet. Only a stone and wood house built with the toil of the hands and a life led to produce flour for bread and to grow vegetables and products of the earth. All surrounded by a luxuriant nature without the traffic and the polluted air of today. A life that is certainly very difficult but much simpler and built on basic concepts like family, land and food.

The construction of this moc took a couple of months and made up of about 5,200 pieces and it took two months of construction. The blades of the mill are powered by a Medium Lego motor and can be turned over with a button on the back of the house.

Moc presented for the first time at the MEI in Verona 2018 (Italy).

Another wonderful creation, my friend.

I wonder why you decided to build such windows, I think it's a matter of reproducing thick medieval glass.

 

Anyway nice work.

Wow, there is a TON of detail here. This is a very rewarding build to look at because I keep seeing new stuff the longer I look. I love it!

Another great MOC as always! This topic deserves much more replies! So many great textures and details! The mill is very nicely shaped and I love the window design! Keep it up :thumbup:

Thanks to all those who wanted to leave a comment!

I had to build this moc quickly but I'm glad I did it and I had a lot of fun. During the Verona fair (MEI 2018 Italy) it was a great success!

Absolutely gorgeous!

I always loved this particular style of wallbuilding. CanYou tell me where do You buy so many grey "bricks". I was never able to get any larger quantity of these... I also like very much the little stones and rocks around the lake.
