Haven't posted in many years. Life has been busy but the collection has continued to grow as I've been able. A few weeks ago my wife found the Bookstore and Diner Modular Buildings on Marketplace, used but nearly complete. I already had the Bookstore but figured my town could always use more housing. I looked for examples of those who have combined two of this set and didn't find anything satisfying for the townhouse portion so I decided I'd try to build it in a mirror image because I've always figured you can flip a modular building with little to no modifications or parts substation. In this case I was correct, the only piece that didn't flip was the little door to the basement in the back but this is minor. It was little mind bending to be building the mirror image of the instructions, and all of the pieces of both buildings were mixed together which prolonged the building process and difficulty but I managed to get every piece in its place. Once it was done I put my two copies side by side and found putting the bay windows together looked odd and putting the doors together was almost right. I then decided to offset them slightly by moving one two studs back on the baseplate. This was simple enough and broke up the roof lines, much like some townhouses in my area are built. The only other modification I had to make was to rework the bottom row of the foundation on the one I shifted back to keep one of the technic bricks in the proper position to be able to still put one of the two connector pins between this one and its neighbours. I will likely build a double bookstore in the future but for now they are on the shelf in my office where they get comments nearly every zoom call :D I am planning a layout in the next room once I have built some cabinets as I have a much larger collection than just the buildings.
We have a long-term ambition to build our own - enlarged - versions of all (more or less) LEGO modular buildings. Previously we have built two buildings based on 10251 Brick Bank, and we have now finished the next two - a 76 cm high modification of 10270 Bookshop. It is not only the height of the buildings that has made this a comprehensive project, but also the fact that all floors are fully furnished and equipped with light from Light My Bricks. For part of the interior, we have taken our starting point in 21328 Seinfeld and 10291 Queer Eye - The Fab 5 Loft, but in addition to this a lot of energy has been put into designing furniture, lamps and other furniture for all the floors.
Sorry I posted this in the wrong sub-forum. Mods - Can you delete this please? I have posted in the Town subforum. Hi, Can't see a post about this but the 10270 et has been revealed. See this URL: https://ww.9to5toys.com/2019/12/06/lego-creator-expert-bookshop/
