Now that I’ve finished the Lego modular Bookshop, I figured I should get to work on the Corner Garage, a set I’ve had for almost a year, but hadn’t found the time to build yet. I decided that even though this building doesn’t split nicely down the middle, I’d stick with building it in two sections. Here’s a look a the first half, which included the bags numbered one through three.
As always, the bags for part one built the foundation for the set, which isn’t always too exciting. This set, however, had a very interesting feature right off the bat…a moving rack for cars to be lifted on! Also included were a mechanic and a very good boy.
The rest of the garage (and the downstairs entrance to the vet’s office located on the second floor) was built in the second set of bags. I love the moving garage door, and all of the little details in this part of the build.
The third set of bags contained the pieces to build the gas pump (and its overhang) plus the tow truck.
The tow truck gave me some fits. Because it has more moving parts than a regular Lego vehicle, it was a more complicated build, and I had to bring Turkey in to help me complete it!
Possibly my favorite part of the whole set is this sign…that is some excellent humor!
Here’s a look at the set, about half-done:
Up next…the second half of the build, including the vet’s office and an upstairs apartment, which actually contains an elusive Lego bathroom!
