Glass House

17 comments
This is my attempt at recreating a tiny green house, like the ones you sometimes see in allotments. Inside it is an orange tree growing on a slight slant leaving just enough room for a minifigure to squeeze inside. As you can see in the pictures, the roof is removable to give a better view of the interior. The whole model is on a green base with a few plants and weeds growing on it.

This makes for a great desk model and it would also be the perfect addition to your LEGO house or modular building. 

I challenged myself to use some uncommon parts in unusual ways. I used four train window pieces (white window 2 x 6 x 2 train) in the walls and two boat window pieces (white windscreen 2 x 8 x 2 inverted) for the roof.

The orange tree was created using a similar technique as the one used to create the tree in front of the Creator Expert Big Ben. It uses green bouquets onto which I have attached some orange technic balls to represent the oranges.

I haven't come up with a minifigure for this set. However, on the final picture I have shown a Mars Mission miner minifigure for scale. Feel free to let me know in the comments if you have any ideas about a minifigure for this set.

This model measures 6.3 x 9.5 x 8.0 cm (2.5 x 3.7 x 3.1 inches).
