A nice small red Swedish house with white details and a special front facade.
About this creation
While driving home from LEGO World Norway 2008 in Oslo, I was driving through Sweeden (fastes way to drive to Tromsų) I spotted a lot of nice houses. I'm not sure where I spotted this house but it was somewhere in the middle along the "inner road" (not along E4).
I just fell in love with the shape of the front facade, I immediately know that I had to try to build this in LEGO. So when I finaly got home I sat down and tried several technics to be able to build those special corners. How do you build a 45 degree corner that is curved in both directions (outwards and into a point)?
It is not a big LEGO house. But will fit fine in the outskirts of a big town layout. It is made out of aprox 600 pieces and was taken apart 07.11.2009.
In spring 2009 I got some trains and found pictures on the web of a trainstation with similar designs. You will find the trainstation here. This Swedish house could easy fit in as a keeper residence (not sure of the correct name of this) beside the trainstation.
First a picture of the originale building:
There is a few more in my Brickshelf folder.
Same angel on my LEGO version.
Side and rear facades.
Closeup detail of the corner. How to make and 45 degree angel AND curve at the same time at this small scale? This looks best from a distance ;)
