A present to our best family friend for his 75th birthday!
About this creation


“Il Professore” bought a plot in the early 80’s in the hills, lake view, while living in town 100 km away.
He was the only one in a family of 3 to earn a salary as a teacher.
His courage, dedication, determination and energy made him deforest his land, dig the foundations and build the walls up to the roof, such as, late in ‘87, he moved in with his family, just living in half of one apartment.
It took him many years after retiring to complete the build of his two story home and still few rooms in the ground floor are incomplete, but we are all very proud of his success!

These are the results of all his efforts !

The gate



The welcome flowers’ fountain



The first floor entrance

Final overview



Well done, Professore!
and
Happy 75th birthday !



P.S.: Next weekend he will see it in real Lego bricks and hope he will appreciate my very modest efforts compared to his ones !

Quoting Topsy Creatori (StoveTopCreator!) Nick and Michael used the word already... gorgeous! I've been thinking how else I might describe this and... exquisite, comes to my mind! I especially like the kitchen flooring! The way this home was built stikes a chord with me, as this is how we built our home! :)
Wish that chord is now playing a nice music to your ears!

Quoting Chris Phipson Great build! And yes, I'm totally going to steal some of those tree techniques... ~ Chris.
Thanks Chris, yours is an invaluable compliment to me. If I steal some of your ideas I do a better deal!

Quoting David . Beautiful work here! The only problem I have is it would be rather awkward in that bathroom with two toilets across from each other. X)
Thanks for your comment. Maybe you live in a country where the bidet is not commonly used, or my design for it is so bad?

It's nice to see a creation showing a residential dwelling, whether it's in the city or country. You really out did yourself. The house is fantastic. Love the interior. You do terrific furniture.
