My Modular City House

So the new City range of sets that I’ll be modularising will belong to that street, more of the new town area vs old town concept. Another distinguishing feature is that the street lamp posts will be the modern type. Continuing the new town street (1st was Pizza Corner), I’ve modularised the 8403 City House.
So the official set looks like this:
And my version looks like this:
Features from the original set retained includes the roof, the porch (although redesigned to have front door porch as well as back porch), garden… well, pretty much most of the basics. I tweaked the windows on 1st and 2nd floor to become bay windows so the house facade is not so flat, and also built in a little balcony on the rooftop.
But a first a little house tour from minifig perspective shall we? 🙂
Looking into the garden from the street…
Ooooh, is that someone sunbathing? For some voyeuristic fun…
Ha, ok, moving on to the house proper, step into the doorway and we see… hmm, just a shelf and a place to eat…
But turn to your left, and you spot the latest 52 inch hi-def, 3D TV… ahhhh…
So the kitchen is fairly compact, just a sink, stove and a bar counter.
And from the bottom we can just make out the back door that leads to the back porch. Notice that in this pic I switched the location of the fence and stairs from the side. The fence has been purposely built for the entrance/stairs to be easily switchable from the side to the back in case future neighbours come into the neighbourhood and the garden has to be either demolished or moved to the back of the house.
Ok, 1st floor almost done, let’s head back into the house (yeah, still no tiles for floor tiling but found some floor mats so dirt dun get trampled into the house 🙂 ):
On the 2nd floor, really not much going on so just a bed, lamp and a computer table:
The 3rd floor has a small balcony for evening drinks and to enjoy the breeze. Interiors not furnished, or not exactly anyway, I’m using it to store extra sofa and lamp – you’ll see in overhead shots later. 😛
Ok, so that concludes the house tour. Hope you liked it!
Not the end of course, I took the mandatory front, back, side, and overhead shots:
And all together now…
And the front & back shots:
I’ve designed the floors so that they can be stacked front-to-back and to be a 2 storey house as well (just for fun!):
And my current modern street looks like this:
Hope you like my street. 🙂
