Hi everyone!

Haven't been here for a long time. My last builds weren't town related and also I was busy with other non Lego stuff. But, I'm back now :grin:

I just finished a new MOC. It's kind of modular, but it's not a Modular :laugh:

In addition to my Amsterdam project I also wanted to build a windmill. It is loosely based on the windmills at Kinderdijk in the Netherlands and the windmill at Rövershagen in Northern Germany. The mill has an octagonal shaped base and a roof that rotates.

It was quite a challenge to build. I struggled a lot and even wanted to quit. The size and the shape of it pushed me way out of my comfort zone.

The first two levels are fully furnished. On the ground floor there is a pottery workshop with a kiln, a pottery wheel, shelves for clay, different types of glaze and finished items.

This floor is splitted into separate smaller modules so it can be removed and the ground floor can be accessed. Also the middle part and the roof of the mill are separate modules.

What a masterpiece! :laugh: The fact that you built all those angles with little to no gaps is mind boggling! It also look incredibly cozy both on the inside and outside. 

Every aspect of this MOC is brilliant! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Great, just great! It looks already fantastic from the outside but with the interior it really is a masterpiece!

Oh, wow. Thank you very much, guys :blush: Makes me happy, that you like it.

Interior is very important to me and it's often the most fun part of the building process. I like to imagine what it would be like to live there if I were a minifigure.

I couldn't be able to say nasty words even if I wanted! This is a perfect model, beautiful to look at, nicely detailed all around and especially superb shaping. I really like the cone at the first grey bit on top of the tan house and the integration of the windows there, amazing! Very very hard to point out something that feels off, so I just won't :classic: I like the use of the fully-studded finish on the model, it gives it that great "it looks real, but it has that Lego charm to it". In that aspect, it reminds me of @Pate-keetongu's house from New Century Corner II, but better overall and put in a more fitting context. Congrats!

This is a gorgeous MOC. Love the flowing sweeping design of the roof and the SNOT connected windows into side. Very warm and fuzzy feeling build. Fantastic work!

Amazing MOC! Just the interior itself would be great, let alone the outside detail!

Normally, I tend to hide every stud :wink: With this shape it wouldn't even be possible. There are no "wedge tiles" to do it. But I have to say, that I actually like the studs on this model and I maybe would have built the mill that way even if those tiles would exist  :classic:

Your interior details look amazing.  You really worked some magic in there!  Wish you were able to get some color variation in your roof to break things up a bit.  Did you explore placing a few random tiles and cheese wedges here and there on the roof to give it some detail and age?

Really nice creation. Especially that shape, and all geometry... But interior is so much clean on my taste...

Fantastic! You did a great job on the shape .... always a struggle for me.

Brilliant constructing the dome in 5's instead of 4's or 6's! Hoe you don't mind if I steal the idea for a zeppelin gas bag. How's you come up with it?

It was just trial and error. I started building the mill bottom to top. So that and the proportions which the mill should have, determined the size of the dome. But it took quite some time to figure it out.
