Though it seem simple but this clever half-stud offset technique by Yeoh Seng Huat will makes a real difference to your build since in reality most windows usually are sash windows. I’m eager to try this technique 🙂
Combined with wall techniques and these are the awesome result:
This awesome building by Ng WY (ToyCrazy) from LUG of Malaysia (LOM) is based on an actual outlet in his home town. He said Town White Coffee was founded in 1999 and has become well known, popular and more than just coffee to the region. The Locals adopted the unique roasting, brewing and stirring techniques based on the traditional way thus creating the unique Old Town aroma.
As for myself, I always enjoy a cup of Robusta coffee in the morning and I hope someday I could taste a cup of this town White Coffee described by Ng WY, it sure sounds really good! 🙂
This Dutch style building made by Barrie Crossan contains a bar on the ground floor and a two-bedroom family apartment on the upper floors. What I like the most besides the overall building and all the details is how Barrie use those Vehicle, Fairing 1 x 4 Side Flaring Intake with Two Pins for the cornice work around the top of the building. Such a beautiful and lovely building!
Here is the cornice work using Vehicle Fairing piece:
I started these builds since June 2015 to participate for my LUG’s community build celebrating Chinese New Year for Dunia Bricks 2016 at March 2016.
Indonesia itself is a multicultural country with lots of diversity spread across the nation with our national slogan’s “Unity in Diversity”. Having said that, there are a lot of Chinese heritage and ethnic lives in Indonesia which I’m one of them, but no…I can’t read and write Chinese, all the writing on the signs there are all copy-paste from Wikipedia…hahaha
This community build was meant as a nostalgic of a classic China Town in Indonesia which you still can find it now, though it looks a lot different with modernization here and there…well, not to forget added with too much classic Kung-Fu movies and shows…hahaha
Though the official modular building sets are the one that brought me back from my dark-ages back in 2013 which I’m still collect and following the series, but it’s one of the theme that I’m afraid the most since I think it’s hard to top the official sets and I’m not skilled enough to do so. Therefore, I humbly present to you my first modular building that I’d made 🙂
I do collects LEGO modular building official sets, in fact it was that theme that really brought me back from my dark ages in 2013.
That’s why I always enjoy modular building builds made by FOL (Fans of LEGO) like this one beautiful house by Fichez Valentin. What I really like from this build are the composition and the color scheme that looks calm and nice, all I can think is I wish I could live there. Superb job Fischez! You can read his full description here.
This lovely build by Er win (rwinZed) is from a name of a traditional house of Betawi people, an ethnic group from Indonesia (which I live there). The name comes from the shape of the roof, which resembles a fold of the Kebaya form of dress. The fold can be seen from the side of the house.
The main characteristic of this house is its wide terrace, which may serve to receive a visitor and as a place for relaxing. In the past, Betawi society usually made a well in front of their house and funerals took place beside their house.
The wall is made from wooden panel which may be moved horizontally to enlarge the room. The house may be divided into two parts, for example the front of the house may be used as a public area, and the rear of the house reserved for private use.
