Victorian VI at Brickworld 2010
Oh frabjous day. I got "Best Large Building" at Brickworld 2010. Lucky for me they added a new category for "Best Mega Creations" so I didn't have to compete with the showstoppers :-)
About this creation

The first three pics are new, added 8/10/2012. I just built a new light box and finally can take photos that accurately capture the colors. I left the rest of the posting alone.







The inspiration for this house is this painted lady at 2128 W. le Moyne St. in Chicago, like Brickworld. I kinda wondered if, on one of the Public Days, the owner(s) might come by and say, "Hey! That's our house!" :-)

AWESOME! But, from what I understand this is a replica of a random house you saw, so how do you know what the inside looks like? Or did you come up with the interior on your own? If you came up with it on your own that's amazing! If you copied it, then man can you make a replica!

Wonderful! Where are the keys? I can move in there at any time! Seriously, as I saw the outside, I thought: "Wow, that´s beautiful." As I saw the inside, I was completely blown away. You did such a nice job recreating this beautiful house with that lovely worked out interior! No wonder, that it placed first. Hats off, Sir! ~Cheers, Marc

That has got to be one of the best MOCs I have ever seen! My fave part is the interior, which looks so good, I thought it was a shot of a real house's inside! Sure wish I had your talent (and all those rare Sand Blue pieces:) Congrats on MOCOTD and the award at Brickworld!

It's sand blue. Not as expensive as maersk blue, but also not that easy to come by.
Quoting Espen St�lder That is maersk blue you're using on the exterior, right? Man, it's exspensive! Amazing work!

Quoting Teddy . Really love your doll house work, and the scale in which you build really allows for the right amount of detailing. Is it the Doll house scale 1:12?
I *really* appreciate those who like my work, and if I had kids or grandkids I'd be happy to let them use my creations as dollhouses, but, just for the record, they *aren't* dollhouses :-) You were right about the scaling ... it allows for the fun detailing. My models were scaled to fit the windows when I got them how I wanted them. I started smaller, but I couldn't get the framing like I wanted it, without ugly gaps. Lucky for me, the size I ended up at happened to allow me to use the Belville sinks, tubs, faucets and cabinets :-) However, since my imagination keeps wandering these days to casement [oops! I meant double-hung] windows with sashes that slide open, there *may* be a model in the future that's on an even bigger scale.

Congratulations on your award! I saw this at Brickworld and voted for it. I wish I would have had a chance to talk with you about how it came together. Excellent work! Incredible detail and scale. Your photos are also excellent. I didn't think it was possible to have that much Sand Blue in a collection to do anything so massive!
 I made it 
  June 26, 2010
Quoting Lee Hardwick Can you please tell me how you make your brick patterns on the outside?
See page 22 of "The Unofficial LEGO Advanced Building Techniques Guide" under Marakoeschtra's wall. Given that I was using sand blue, I went with alternative three on the parts used. Don't even try alternative two. The pins rotate freely in the holes, so the tiles dangle wildly. The guide is widely available (I am *not* the author) but here is a link to a copy on my website, for your convenience: http://softarae.com/dragon/pdfs/techniques.pdf

After closely examining your photos of the foyer and the french doors, I have come to the conclusion that you are not possibly human, but, instead, are an alien-programmed entity so highly skilled in LEGO building that you were assigned the specific task of showing us mere earth mortals how futile our attempts at achieving LEGO nirvana truly are. I feel small.

I wish I had talked to you, and asked to see your house in more detail, but maybe next year. Congratulations on the award, you and your creation deserved it. Keep building! -Anthony Dunne
