About this creation
This is my build for Round II of the M.O.C.S Contest . I am pitted against the talented Carter Witzenburg and our task is to build a watermill.



The sand green color is meant to represent algae and moss clinging to the walls of the mill. I think olive green would have worked better, but I don't have nearly enough of that color as of now. I imagined that this mill is currently closed, as the water in the river is too low. The stonework along the basement of the mill is exposed, but in the spring, will be partially submerged underwater.



The wheel is connected to a gear system so that when it turns, the saw in the mill also turns. I partially built the interior of the mill so you can see the saw.





The wheel of the watermill was difficult to construct. I ended up with this design...



Good luck to Carter and the other participants in this contest!

Thanks for looking!

Though both your roof and landscaping are somewhat appealing, the lack of detail in the water and walls of the build take quite a bit away from the overall effect of the build. Unfortunately, your opponent has my vote. ~Shevik~

Very nice, cool way to use the sloped pieces on the roof for warping wood. Great work!

Quoting Connor R. Carter, I really like your entry, the river is nice and the trees give it a nice feel, however the house is mediocre and so is the landscape. But all the components together gives the build a nice theme. Geology, your entry is very clean and straight, the techniques are a bit simple but they work well, the only thing that really stands out to me is the snow which could be improved and the water wheel which is quite studsy. In the end my vote goes to Geology Joe, but you both should be proud of your entries!
Thanks!

Quoting Elio Salsano Hi there, This build looks pretty good, but it lacks a little. It needs a bit more life and a bit more texture. I do like your wheel and your roof. The wooden section (middle part) needs a bit more structure. The snow is a great idea. You show the inside, it needs a lot more detail. a lot of wood, maybe a handsaw on the wall, other tools, would improve it. Apart from these points and the rather simple design, it does look pretty cool and would look good in a medieval town/city. I wish you good luck with the other judges. My vote goes to your opponent. Greetz, Elio
Thanks Elio!

I really like the design and layout of this build, and I'm also a sucker for snow scenes. The roof is great and I liked the snow piled around the pillars. However, I feel that the walls are bland without much texture. In the end, my vote goes to Carter. Though Good job.

Quoting D H Awesome! I like how watermills give you the opportunity to get a little technic in eh? And I really like the unique build portrayal of a winter time scene when the mill is shuttered until the spring swell of the river!
Thanks D H!

Quoting Carter Witzenburg Looks really great! Nice build, it has a very good size. The fact that it can be viewed from all angles, and how it has an interior really adds to this build. I have always enjoyed snow landscapes, which makes this build fun to look at. Though I think it would have been nice if the wheel could have reached the water. Good luck!
Thanks! Yeah, I debated having the water level higher but I wanted to go with the deep trans blue and I didn't have too much of it. Good luck!

Quoting Rove Random Nice work! You may, however, want to change the title to Watermill rather than Windmill.
Ha! Thanks, I didn't notice that...

Very nice work! I think the whitewashed section could use some wooden beams for detail, but other than that it looks excellent! Good luck!

Great job! I think there are too many studs showing on the balcony and wheel and somethings bothering me about the snow; I'm not sure what though. Good luck.
