My first thought was that this reminds me of the rebrickable radio station rebuild of the police station modular- then I clicked on the rebrickable link and saw in the description you said you were inspired by it. Cool! The layout of that model is so nice, it plays with depth and height in a really unique way for the modular series, and I think you've effectively put your own stamp on it. This is a really intelligent model and I love it.

I love how the surf shop looks so temporary, like it's just the current iteration of that building's ongoing palimpsest. As in, there have been many businesses located there over the years, and the surf shop probably won't even be the last one. The red accents throughout the build really help bring it together which is a nice touch. The dog house is cute. My favorite part has to be the stone statue on the side of the building- probably a relic from when it was first built- and the kind of thing that, if you're a minifig who maybe walked by this corner every day during a season of your life, you'd visit the town years later and see it there, and all the memories would come flooding back. Thanks for sharing your build!
