About this creation
Just a fun little build to try out some new things. Specially I wanted to use the few dark brown tiles I had gotten, and I wanted to try my work with two story houses. I haven't done anything close to that in a while.
I'll add to what Halhi said with one VERY minor suggestion, because overall this build looks great. Normally shingles aren't placed in a grid - each row is staggered to cover the gaps in the row before it. Again, this is a minor detail, but it would be cool if you found a way to incorporate this feature into your next build.
Thank you Mr. Cow. I'm going to focus on your biggest complaint, the timbering and the fact you can see white threw it. I had to make it white, because in order to get equal levels...I had to have exposed headlight bricks. It's somewhat complicated, but I used SNOt techniques, and the black headlight bricks would be visible from the side. Hopefully that made sense.
Nice one! I like the overall architecture of it. Since you asked for a critique, here goes...the timber framing is overall executed quite well, but on the side on the second picture, we can see light (or white pieces) through the timber. If it's attached with white pieces, than I'd recommend attaching it with black pieces since those blend in with the timber pretty well. Otherwise, try putting a solid wall of bricks behind the MOC. The texturing on the lower level looks pretty good overall, I only have two flaws with it. First, maybe it could use some sand green and/or dark tan to add colors, and second, the SNOTted plates would look better as tiles. Finally, the upper level texturing is also good, but I find that it looks best to have most of the tan around the wood beams (usually at the bottom), like David Hensel does it. Anyway, great MOC!
