Time for the second half of the newest Lego modular building! After building the side for which the set gets its name (the bookshop), I turned my attention to the attached apartment building. The fifth set of bags contained a minifig and the foundation for the home, which included an awesome staircase!
A second minifig was included in the sixth set of bags, and the main living space for the home, including a lovely cabinet and charming tea set, plus a really cool window, were added:
Structurally, the seventh set of bags didn’t add a lot…mostly it was just a framework, with some pretty big gaps. But it did include the bedroom, with a fun build of a bed, and a cute little dresser. (It did not include a bathroom, which is troubling to me, because I really don’t feel there are enough bathrooms for all of the minifigs that frequent my modular Main Street!)
The final set of bags finished off the exterior of the bedroom, and included a fun little balcony, plus an amazing way to build some shingles for the front side of the building around the windows:
Probably my favorite part about this set is that the two halves can be separated and displayed however you want. I mixed them up here, just to show how each arrangement looks, but in the end, when I finish my modular Main Street (for this year, anyway), I’ll have them in two completely different locations, and not connected to each other at all!
I still have last year’s modular garage to build…I’ve been holding on to it for almost a year, and I’m hoping to get started on it soon, so I can add it to the Main Street, as well, and share an updated photo of my current design!
