Lego Challenge #29: Vista House
Yesterday I had an opportunity to climb up Mt Spokane and snowboard down afterwards. There was a decent amount of snow, but the ski resort isn’t open yet. Along my hike, I visited two historic buildings from the CCC era: The cabin on Beauty Mountain and the beautiful Vista House on the summit of Mt Spokane. For today’s project, I built a model of the Vista house cabin.
My Lego bricks are stored in my Swoop Bag using ziploc bags and 4 plano boxes. As such, I was able to bring them with me for Thanksgiving. I opened the bag up on the large coffee table at the house we were visiting and started building.
The round window was tricky, I had to attach an “arch” piece upside-down. I didn’t use any particularly advanced techniques in the rest of the model.
This was my first time building a Lego model away from our house, and I’m happy to say that my portable Lego architecture studio worked well. The model is a good likeness, although I don’t think I was able to achieve as much detail as some of my previous models.
P.S. Happy Thanksgiving!
project time: 1 hour.
