Very creative! The SNOT(Studs Not On Top) work is nice! I like your idea with the carpet, too! And there is another way to make a stained glass window. You can stack a bunch of translucent cheese slopes together, and it looks REALLY good. :) And I hate it when I run out of bricks... Maybe you should find some good sets with the pieces you need. Or order some pieces online! And again, great build!
