Tea, light aqua, and cobblestone… it just goes!
I did something a little different with the interiors for this build – I built just as much as you could see from the outside. Building fully furnished interiors that are almost impossible to capture well because of camera angle constraints is a pain, so I was trying to avoid that with this creation!
On the second story we have a restaurant for select customers.
It was fun to use glasses for the fence and fences for the lattice roof over the balcony!
And of course, I need to point out the use of a dragon tail for a plant…
Here’s another shot of the whole house!
Inside we’ve got some plants hanging from the roof to help out with the ambiance.
The second story has a bit of an interior too!
And here is the full build without minifigures:
Now for some behind the scenes shots! Notice the black plate behind the lower story doors here – this is with the door shut. The plate keeps unwanted light from seeping through the cracks.
Here’s what went into the downstairs interior. The wall was loose so I could push it around where I needed.
I used hands to attach the door panels.
The upstairs interior pulls out easily so I could pick things up that fell down.
I had plans for a full interior, thus the fancy doors. But I didn’t like the idea of detailing all that blank wall…
Lastly, the roof also has a black backing to keep light out from the cracks. It slots in pretty nicely!
A parting shot…
