Good stuff! I like details all around. The color mixture of the building is rarely used but works very well here.

Looks great!  I like the decay and the colour combination in the facade, and the "business" of the common area which gives it lots of character.

Thanks! I was a bit worried that the fence would look too clean.

Thank you! I have done the decay bit before, and I really like the look of it. Sometimes, it takes longer to find the right minifigs than doing the building, but it's so worth it.

Thanks! I always try to make things happening on the roof. An empty roof is just a waste of space and a missed opportunity.

Stunningw ork on the facade. Love the decayed effect with the medium dark flesh & dark orange.

The sand green also works well on the ground floor and the roof. I'm on the fence with its use on the sceond floor though. On the one hand I think the arches & tiles stand out too much there, but on the other it just fits.  :classic:

Very nice building technique ...it's amazing to see the embossed brick under the smooth bricks

The garden where the kids are playing around is very complex in its simplicity (and perfection) :wub:

Great work!

Thanks for your kind words and your input. I wanted some kind of arch above the second floor windows, preferably in dark orange, but 92950 don't come in too many colours.

Thank you! One of the best things is to get the minifigs to give life to the build. It's great fun to find the right combination of head, hair, torso and legs and to make the figs interact.

What a great build!! The textures and detailing on the building make it look incredibly realistic but it's all the little details and activity around it that really bring it to life (I especially like the fence made of roller door pieces!!)

Excellent work and thanks for sharing!!

Thank you for your kind words! It's sometimes hard to know when enough is enough. It's easy to overdo things.

I'm happy to share, and, hopefully, inspire others.

I always try to use the roof, especially if it's a flat one, as a part of the build. An empty roof is just a waste of space and a missed opportunity, as far as I'm concerned.
