Hello everybody! I’m glad to
introduce you my new project on LEGO Ideas, which refers to a rural house
featuring an old, battered, wrecked and ruined appearance.
I have spent a lot of
enjoyable hours building this project with LDD, and several more rendering the
different views and main objects. It’s been a lot of work, but at the same time
it’s been very pleasant too. The main features are set forth below.
The house comprises a front
entrance, a backyard, a ground floor, a first floor and a gable roof. The walls
are made with clay bricks coated with plaster. The building’s masonry is
greatly shattered, partially collapsed and ruined by aging and severe weather
conditions, making visible many of the bricks under the plaster coating and a
lot of cracks.
The set has been designed onto
two base plates (32x32 and 16x32).
In front of the house there is
a big broken tree trunk, which is next to some agricultural rusty tools. Vegetation, masonry and window panes surround the entrance, blocking the access
to the house.
The backyard is on the right
side of the house. It is surrounded by a partially collapsed wall, yet still
enwrapping a large tree that has grown up without control and that it menaces
to fall onto the house. Next to the tree there is an old wooden bench. A brown
toad is hidden at the bottom of the backyard.
In the ground floor it may
still be distinguished an old kitchen and a dining room. The kitchen still
keeps a broken sink, a pair of cupboards, a small gas stove and a fireplace.
Some wooden beams of the first floor hang from the ceiling, while others have
already fallen onto the kitchen. A door provides access to the dining room, in
which there is a wooden staircase partially detached from the wall and that it provides
access to the first floor.
The first floor is so
shattered that the rooms cannot be distinguished. Great holes are everywhere
on the floor, showing the beams beneath. Very few objects remain on the floor, as
for example, a deteriorated chair and a small chest of drawers. Clay bricks,
roof tiles, window panes and glass are scattered all around.
The roof is made of
clay roof tiles that have lost their original colour over time. Large pieces of
roof have fallen onto the lower floors, leaving great holes behind. The
fireplace’s chimney, although visibly deteriorated, still stands on the
I hope you like it. Thanks for
