Lego Houses for Your City Layout?

UPDATE: I don’t know why my video embed code is not working. 😦 Too late at night to de-bug, so I’ve updated with links to the vids for now. 😦
I believe most Lego City fans would also have a few Creator houses, if not for integrating with their other City buildings, then for a good supply of spare bricks for MOCs or MODs. There was even a discussion on Eurobricks on blending Creator houses with City layouts: Link to EB Forum. Btw, each house set contains 3 building designs/models – so it’s 3 for the price of one! Worth it huh?
Me? Yeah, I think I would integrate them into my future town, though considering that I have been lucky to complete the collection so far, I may just do a separate showcase of them if (when?) I ever build them. 😛
Jonathan (guest blogger!) was once again very kind to share these wonderful clips that he found. The videos are really quite amazing, so do have a look especially if you have not built them before. Unfortunately TubaFrog has only done up vids for the last 4 houses, so just pics for the rest, but I did also find a EB review for 4956 to make up for it. 😉
Starting from the oldest to the most recent:
(I included 4886 altho it’s not a ‘Creator’ set as I think it’s the predessor to the later sets…)
