I decided, in honor of my first post, I would reflect on my first real build after my “dark ages.” This was built from September - December 2011. I didn’t have many sets at the time. I ended up getting some City Police sets because they had a lot of white pieces. There are also pieces from Harry Potter’s The Burrow set. This set was really inspiring - it being a house and all.

There are things I really love about it, and I remember being quite proud when I finished. It’s funny seeing the simplicity of my building, but the level of details, for the lack of sets I owned at the time, is astounding. I realized, looking back, that I don’t put as many accessories in my builds now. I haven’t looked at these pictures since I took them and I am surprised at my creativity. But cell phone pictures are awful! And don’t use flash.

My dogs hated it, as the brick has dogs barking. I loved my tile
work, as I didn’t have many tiles at the time.
|The kitchen! Details include: Floor lamp, microwave, coffee maker,
radio, stove/oven, refrigerator, hanging pots and pans, broom, clock
and in the middle a nice size island.
|Here is the dining room. Hardwood floors, weapon decorations, and a |
table for two.
|The master bedroom. This I do not like. The bed blends right
into the floor. |
Shame on me. It includes a floor lamp, storage trunk, dresser, and

The sheer size of the house is impressive. Then I learned to use stairs.
I also made a quick video of the house that includes the back yard and barn areas.
Do you remember your first build? If so, what was it?
