My first MOC! - a very simple Georgian Terrace House
About this creation
So after about a year of collecting parts, checking out MOC after MOC after MOC, um-ing and ah-ing and not really knowing what to build - here it is - my first MOC. I wanted to start with something simple to get my feet wet so I went with a Georgian Terrace House as that style of building is generally quite plain with little in the way of intricate detailing. It's modular and Cafe Corner compatible.
I have to say - you can never have too much LEGO (well you probably can - what a thought). This little build consumed all my tan bricks. So much so that the rear of the building is without wall. I was going to get more bricks and 'fix' that before taking photos but actually I found having no rear wall made photographing inside much easier. Plus, I like being able to turn the building around and see inside without needing to remove each floor.
I also have to say - photographing LEGO is tricky. I thought the whole sorting parts thing was tough, but making your MOC look good with a camera - even tougher! Still, getting in right (which I didn't in these photos mind you) is all a part of the fun.
OK, so here it is. Please go easy on me - I promise to get better! ;-)
Every house needs flowers out the front...
...and a man with a top hat and cane. Classy.
It may not look it but those railings took me a while to come up with. I think they're okay, yeah?
The top floor. I ran out of dark red curved bricks for the other curtain and tan slopes for the edges of the roof - woops!
Inside the ground floor. The grandfather clock is straight from the Green Grocer set.
Inside the middle floor. The dresser is a variation from the Fire Station set. This one's a bit wider and taller.

Inside the top floor. Yep, there should be another dark red curtain there. A trip to BrickLink is definitely needed before the next MOC!
WOOHOO! My first MOC done and dusted. I feel like I've reached a milestone ;-D
