Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThe front part of this model was originally the blacksmith's shop part of set 70751, (Temple of Airjitzu) while the car was inspired by set 4728 (Escape from Privet Drive). I took the whole shop apart and added a swing-open back portion to the building, turning it into a house in the process. I added a similar yet sturdier styled roof, and a staircase to get to the upper floor. I then added interior details and a car that I had already obtained. Standing back for a second, I realized it looked a little like the cookie-cutter subdivision houses common in cities all over the USA after World War II, kinda like the one my grandmother used to live in. You could put a lot of these type of houses in a row, in all sorts of colors, and still make a typical late 1950's / early 1960's subdivision. Speaking of colors, you can change the medium blue to the following other colors: sand green, light bluish gray, black, dark red, blue, tan, dark bluish gray, red and yellow. The car is based on the one used in the movie "Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets". This updated LEGO version features an remade hood / grille area and comes with an opening trunk. The rear of the house. I am actually going to modify the roof a bit when built in real life, and continue the slope of the house instead of abruptly cutting it off. The inside features a stove, couch, upright piano and stool, side table, bed, and phonograph. The piano was thrown in there because I couldn't think of anything to put there but a table, (and I wanted to put a piano somewhere in my town) and the large-cone-style phonograph probably is a little out-of-date for the 1960's. This is my updated version of the car in set 4728, (Escape from Privet Drive). That car is based on the one used in the movie "Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets". In real life, this car type was built from 1959 - 1968 and was designed by the Ford Motor Company for use in the UK. The engine was a straight in-line four cylinder, and the body came in 2 door saloon, 3 door estate & 2 door panel van. (I think the LEGO version is the 2 door saloon) The rear of the car features a opening trunk and a license plate. Here is the owner of the house and car: me! (This mini-figure is NOT in the LDD file!) The LDD file for the house and car is available here: http://www.mocpages....1445877553m.lxf EDIT 1/11/16: (Version Two) Since the last time I uploaded this model on October 26th of 2015, I recolored the house to tan and redid the second floor. It also has a newer roof, with a larger front awning over the porch area. I did remove the upright piano and it's stool from the inside. These two items were replaced with a small kitchen table and chair. The rear of the house. The roof back here was modified as well. The inside features a stove, couch, kitchen table, and chair, side table, bed, and vintage phonograph. One again, the cone on the phonograph is a little out of date for the 1960's... Sorry! Here is the new LDD file for both the car and house: http://www.moc-pages...1452548291m.lxf
