Modular Apartment Hello! First time posting my MOCs on EB. This is my alternate build for 71006 Simpsons House. No additional parts from other sets were used. This is inspired by the reddish brown apartment in 10218 Pet Shop. If you remove the base, and use a 16 x 32 baseplate, it is a modular build with half the size. Technic pinholes were at the right place too. However, to stay true to the set, I brick built my own base. The 2 x X black bricks given were excellent for this. I just had to coat all 4 sides with tan 1 x X bricks to make the colour match the floor. Things I learnt: 1 x 3 bricks/ plates are extremely useful. There is none of that in this set. I used to hate grey bricks. Now I understand why all the modulars have them. It is to build contrast so your primary colour looks nicer. Small 1 x 1 round plates/ flower designs are extremely useful for decorating things. I used to feel cheated when I get tons of them. There are rarely any here. It's hard to use brighter colours from the set without running out of parts of the same colour. Hence I avoid them as much as possible. Wedge pieces are good to have, but if you throw a bunch of mismatched sizes it doesn't look smooth and nice at all. Time flies when you're MOCing! First night, I was supposed to sleep at 12. Ended up building until 3am. Front: Back: First floor: Here, I ran out of 2 x 2 bricks. The last 2 were used on the long sofa. The rest of it is used as fortification below the floorboard. I never buy classic buckets, I feel they give me as a town builder too many 2 x X bricks, where I use 1 x X the most. Now I find out why they did it. On to the second floor... The stairs were an afterthought. I built the empty 2nd floor before I came back. With my remaining depleting supply of tan plates, I only managed to use so many. I had the option of using 1 x 1 cones for the support, or 1 x 1 cheese slopes, but they were in bring colours hence I forgone it and used the trans round plates instead. Underneath the stairs is supposed to be a toilet (surprise, surprise) that's why there was a door. But I chose to fortify the curving part of the stairs with bricks connecting to the floor. Second floor: Small sofa, a side table and a fan. I built the small sofa with the long sofa and the TV console in the first floor. Inspired by the couch in Big Bang Theory, I attempted it without any bricks with bows as Simpsons House did not have any. Chose to use the 2/3 slope instead. Exposed stud in front can hold your wine glasses or cups! "This book looks good.." The awkward cheese slope on top is meant to be a book holder stand. Initially it was 2 layers tall, but I realised it would be an awkward fit due to ceiling height. Hence it only has 1 layer. I ran out of 1 x 4 tan plates early and refused to use the blue panels given in the original set (Lisa's bookshelf). On to the third floor. Here, my supply of tan plates were extremely depleted, only had about 5 left. It was then, I decided to switch to the precious dark orange and medium dark flesh bricks used as the chimney in the original build. Here is the rooftop garden. "Let's water my plants.." "This one looks like it's flowering" I ended up with quite a number of 1 x 4 tiles, but 1 x 2 and 1 x 1 tiles were almost depleted. 1 x 1 plate and 1 x 2 plate was also nearly depleted. I had no 1 x 4 plates left. It's because of the curved windows, I had to layer 3 full rounds of plates before I could tile it up and move on to the next floor. Overall Simpsons House gave me quite a bit of satisfaction on the main build, but this was one of the stuff I wanted to try out, seeing I now have an abundance of Tan. Only thing is, there isn't a lot of bricks with stud on sides, and no curved bows at all. Slopes were minimal and most were in dark brown. But I appreciate the wide variety of bright coloured parts used as furniture in the main build. Just that I didn't like the sharp contrast, as it reminds me too much of the main build. I never ran out of 1 x 6 or 1 x 4 bricks, and had an abundant supply of 1 x 12 bricks left after.
