Victorian IIIB . Victorian IIIB - nominated for Best Large Building at Brickworld 2012. It is over 33" tall and includes more than 17,000 pieces. . This Victorian was built on commission. While starting out as a simple re-build of Victorian III using medium blue rather than sand blue, the changes and developments multiplied until it became a unique creation inspired by the same Stick-Eastlake Victorian in San Francisco, California. I have had a number of inquiries about the availability of instructions for my Victorians, so I did a presentation at Brickworld 2012 on my construction methods and why there will never be printed instructions :-) This presentation (originally in PowerPoint) has been converted to jpegs and posted on my web site: The Building of Victorian IIIB I apologize for the fact that only a few of the pics were taken after the building was complete and the rest while it was still under construction, so there are some rough edges. I learned a lot about SNOT techniques on this build, and got those base window trim pieces not only looking like I wanted, but attached securely! The whole top floor/attic is a LEGO building/play room. In one corner is a child-sized castle play room. I wish I'd had something like that when *I* was a kid! Victorian IIIB was built for display, but it doubles as a doll house. I had to look outside of LEGO to find a doll the right scale. That doll and the two dogs shown are the only non-LEGO elements included. Here it is photographed next to the Fire Brigade modular building set in order to show the difference in scale. I included a standard minifig and a Belville fig on the porch to show that even the Belville fig is too small. There's a fountain in the back yard, visible from the living room through the sliding patio doors, and from the patio swing (see next pic). A second view of the back porch/patio area before the landscaping was done, but showing the porch swing. The chair is fully reclinable :-) It took a couple of tries to get the sweeping staircase down into the living room that I wanted. Includes a claw-footed bathtub :-) The stairs end in a ladder going on up into the attic. I wouldn't want to climb that ladder every day myself, but for a kid it would be a plus :-)
