My second alternate of the Hillside House. The more I build with some sets and more I discover that the newest houses are not as good as the older ones: when there were no minifigures in the sets. Now, the designers seem to build the house exclusively for the minifigure, which tends to create "cheaper" houses. But that is only my perception of things. Sorry if I bothered you. And sorry for the unclear photos: I haven't yet mastered my new camera.
About this creation
The front yard without the car. You can see that the parking is mostly made of wood planks. There also is a chair, some decorative stones and what I call a "king tree". The doorbell works.
The ground floor interior: not much to see except a small table to put a cup on.
Inside the greenhouse: some plants, a thermometer and a mouse hole on the floor, behind a yellow flower.
Upstairs, a simple bedroom with a bed (of course) and a working table.
I kinda lacked of inverted slope bricks, so I had to fill the four studs wide hole with something. I built a light pit.
Very nice looking house. Not so sure that I agree about your statement though. From my experiences, I found the beach house to be hard to work with. The apple tree house, however, seems to be the best creator house ever though.
Looking forward to the new sets. The car transport seems to be interesting.
