Watchman's House
Hi everyone! This creation is not remote controlled, but don't worry! The next one will be that! :)
About this creation

If you recall the memories about my older buildings (snack bar, airport control tower, floriculture), you may realise, that all of them had a very detailed interior, and it was more attractive, than the exterior. Now I tried to create a building with a highly detailed overall look. And it has no interior, because I had to use the space inside for building different things, which keep the door, the windows and the chimney.

After some brainstorming I found out, that I make something in the style of the old Hungarian railway buildings. There are a lot of interesting challenges at this topic. Stations, sheds, water houses, warehouses, etc. Finally I decided to build the wathman's house, because it is the smallest, and this size is still okay for my budget :)

The next picture shows the house with my Siemens Taurus. Not exactly the same era - totally different :D – but I think they look cool together!



The pictures below show a lot of interesting things around the house, after them you can see the building tricks I used in or on the house.

I'm really proud of two things.

The first is the white MÁV (hungarian railway company) fence. It is possible to find it almost everywhere (picture of the real one). My Lego version is not perfect, a little bit different from the real one, but I guess, I can’t do it better with Lego bricks. The fence is modular, and only the gravity holds it. Basic rule of Lego is 2 studs = 5 plates. It is not true. Theoretically it is possible to make an endless fence, but the truth is that only these five moduls are enough to create an ugly difference between the basement and the fence…

The second is the two bushes. They are also held by the gravity. I used this and this elements to create them.

Furthermore there is an outhouse and a garden shower in the courtyard.

Another interesting thing is the roof. I always used platebuilt roofs with hinges, but it is possible to create only a few angles with them, whithout a gap at the top, between the two half. But now I found out this new technique with technic pieces.































Thanks for visiting!

I always like seeing familiar things built from LEGO. The MÁV H-fence is a superb detail. The Taurus doesn't really look that odd behind it, since a some of these buildings have survided to this day. For those unfamiliar with the standard design buildings of Hungarian railways (I can't fathom why someone wouldn't know about that), here's a real watchman's house restored : http://vasutallomasok.hu/index.php?o=showlanc&l=37055&f=3192

Beautiful house! Fantastic detailing, and some cool techniques used. The Windows looks really great and the Technic solution for different angles of the roof is brilliant. Excellent Work!

That fence is quite an achievement and well worth pointing out. Great design work from you! I also like the angled tiles over the windows, which make nice arches.
