About this creation
These shots show the building of the Victorian over time as well as how certain features are constructed. See the Victorian House MOCPage for the final version.

   I started this MOC at the bay window so I'd be sure I could build it. It's a pretty important feature on a Victorian.

   You can see the wall made of tiles here, too.



Enlarge image
   The interior workings. You can't see inside any windows or doors on this house as there's no interior to speak of.



Enlarge image
   See that tiny line of white sealing the crack in the siding?

   Panels on headlight bricks.



Enlarge image
   Starting to get some progress. I designed the main window to be used all over the house here. Since I was using tiles, every segment of wall between posts is 2, 4, 6, or 8 studs long, making them quite modular.



Enlarge image
   The wall siding by the door was done differently. It was a 1x6 plate with 6 1x1 bricks, and on those was a 1x6 tile in tan. This creates a very nice door frame while keeping the siding look intact.

   As seen here.



Enlarge image
   Figured out my railing posts here. Also, I lifted the brickwork from a Brickshelf galley, so credit to him, not me.



Enlarge image
   Building the back porch and tower. I didn't know what to do for the roof yet: Slopes? Tiles? Make it a deck?



Enlarge image
   Headlight bricks holding walls and windows.



Enlarge image
   Bringing the door back up.



Enlarge image
   Starting to lay slopes to line the deck, but...



Enlarge image
   turns out those would have made the rail too tall, so I continued the nice white trim idea.



Enlarge image
   Getting closer...



Enlarge image
   It's hard fitting in a bay window AND a doorway in one corner, but I did by attaching the doorframe to the side wall and putting a post in front.



Enlarge image
   The other side.



Enlarge image
   I forgot to talk about that back porch cover. The tiles increase by 1/2 plate incriments, as one can see (check Brickshelf or the Victorian House MOCPage for better pictures). To do this, the middle tile row was capped by bricks turned sideways with tiles facing out. They're held in place by the standard 1x1 Technic with 1/2 pin technique on the inside end of the porch.



Enlarge image
   Tower's done! Now to figure out a roof.



Enlarge image
   I had an odd number of studs to work with, so I used jumpers to offset the roof a half-stud inward. Perfect!



Enlarge image
   Inside the roof, this is the round window.

I'm the first person in three years to comment on this!! This is a very good Victorian era house I can't believe no one commented on this more. Great job on the windows btw.

Hi Tom, Great architecture and use of SNOT. i was particularly interested in your GOMB (grey-orange moonbase) which i found on brickshelf. i would really like to add it to my 'virtual moonbase' if that's okay with you. Please get in touch if you can. www.virtualmoonbase.com
