It was dusk when the boy's house came into view.
The house stood on stilts above the water. Blue flowers grew knotted and thick across the roof. The boy’s father had removed the flowers a few years ago but they returned defiant, so he had decided to let them be. The boy liked the way the flowers looked, as did his mother, though they had started to damage the roof.
Their old fishing boat was tied to the jetty and rocking gently on the tide. The boy liked to sit in it occasionally and read, or just watch the fish swim around the legs of the jetty, enjoying the protection it offered from the open water.
The boy's cat meowed and brushed against his leg. The smell of cooking fish wafted over the sand towards him, his stomach grumbled. He bent down and scratched the cat behind the ear before the pair of them headed up the ramp towards the front door. The boy looked forward to the sight of his parents at the table with a nice hot meal.
Here is my new LEGO Ideas project: The Ocean House.
The build uses 1800 pieces and comes with 3 minifigures:
