Fully-Illuminated City House (9V lights)
This City House was built in order to accomplish a "nicer" quarter of one of my town layouts. It was one of the few buildings in town that were fully illuminated - it looked quite nice at night. I placed it right next to the Bell Tower Mansion and its green yard/park-like garden. That neighbourhood was rather fashionable and halfway surrounded by some train tracks; it looked very city-like. The features of the house were a post office on the ground floor, a nice little pedestrian passage to get to the next street on the other side of the building, and a garage. The top floor could be reached by an outer stairway (not visible on the pics) leading to a big balcony. From there, the main entrance opened the way to a cute little two-room city apartment.
About this creation
This is the only other picture I took at that time, showing the house right next to the mansion. I really liked this entire layout a lot, even though it was a little less playable as the other towns I used to build.

Great model and awesome lighting! 9V lighting, you say... I should think about that. For the sake of realism, I was planning on buying some different LEDs and installing them in our MOC's, but I wasn't too sure if/how it would work. Now, to be honest, I've never used original LEGO lighting, except on an old police truck (I guess it was from 1993), but it does look pretty good. Stephen's right tho, this would make a GREAT "da-roof-is-on-fire" vig :))) Btw, I'd love it if you could check out some of our MOC's... We've also used lighting, however it was just for the photos, since those were Christmas lights and the heat they emit is none too good for the plastic LEGO parts...

@Everybody: thanks for rating & all the kind reviews you wrote. @Stephen Abbott: I donīt know Stephen, all the lights I used were actually original Lego lights - in this house 9V lights, in the big mansion the older 12V original Lego equipment... So: so far, I am purist (except the metal bell I used in the mansionīs tower... Canīt wait to see your airport layout, though! What kind of lamps did you use? Steffen

This ultimately proves that you can't be a Lego purist and have fun at the same time! Excellent effort; I'll be uploading my own full-size minifig-scale airport in the upcoming months, and I've installed flashlights inside the terminal, beacons on the control tower, streetlights, and runway lights for night operations. That was several months ago. But you, my man, are on a roll! Good job. It's funny how the light shines through the slightly-transparent roof. Actually, I think it makes the house look on fire. You should create a vignette with this, with a night-time fire, and add a few fire trucks with realistic flashing lights, and-

From a distance, it actually looks like a house. Great realism, and overall appeal.

I really like the way the red roofs and the courtyard are reminiscent of colonial Spanish architecture. And the lights set it off really very nicely. Well done!
