Lego Challenge #2: Build a microscale home, then a bigger model with more details.

Today’s challenge: Build a simple Microscale home that fits easily on a 8×8 plate. Build the same model on a 16×16 baseplate, with a focus on adding details which weren’t possible at the smaller scale.

I started the project by coming up with an idea for a simple home. I wanted to build a home with an integrated backyard living space that included both a covered and uncovered patio. I found it difficult to build a home at such a micro scale, but after a few tries, I was able to build something that I liked.

The same home built to two different scales.

The second part of the project was much more fun. It was easier to build the larger model, in part due to the fact that I already had a model to expand on, and because the additional size made it easier to incorporate the details which I wanted.


It was hard to build an interesting house model in the smaller scale. I enjoyed the creative process in building the larger model, since it allowed me to add lots of fun new details.

build time: 1.5 hours.

    Missing from this set are parts like 3041, 3048 and 3300 etc.
    But a great set anyway.
