My entry to Caleb's 4x4 contest
About this creation
For Round 4 of Caleb's 4x4 Contest in the category "Slums".

My opponent is The Object of Legend.




Some pipes beneath the house and a questionably flimsy foundation. Note some locations where the pipes seem to not work properly too - perhaps that's why nobody's bothering to use the sink...





Even if the pipes did work, the sink is still much too high for minifigures to reach. So it isn't just the run-down walls that make this house a bad place to live...





The whole build. Lots of texture and hinges/SNOT. One of the main problems was getting the tile walls to look good from the inside and outside while showing minimum amounts of tile/plate bottoms. In the end I used some Plates with clip light to have the fronts of the tiles showing on both sides.





From the inside you can see that the foundation of the house probably wasn't strong enough to support it...


Necessary pictures to prove the lack of overhang:





Thanks for viewing!

Quoting Kai Bernstein Awesome dilapidated, "slummy" appearance. Looks like it was very tedious to build. :P
Somewhat. Mainly just a lot of SNOT and hinges, at least it wasn't especially fragile...

New judge here. It was a tough decision between you and Object, but I ended up having to choose... you! I love the roof design, and the pipes on the inside. Many nice techniques here, so great job, and good luck!

This one is going to be tough....It's hard to choose between the complex textures of your build and the rich and varied details of Object's build. So before I say who I give my vote too, I just want to say that this could go either way and that both of you did a fantastic job. In the end, Object gets my vote. Good luck with the other judges.

The object of legend VERY nearly got my vote. However, your textures, the cleanliness, and the techniques of your MOC won my vote.

Great job capturing the look of a dilapidated slum. The broken plumbing is great idea, since that seems to be a common problem in the slums.
