Building following the Café Corner Standard
About this creation
Now I'm officiall back in town guys! :D

Sorry, no spaceship this time! There is a Lego City project at my local LUG (www.lgoe.at), so I decided to give it a try! I guess it's not that bad for my first Café Corner building. Still there were a lot of problems during the process and honestly, building a spaceship seems a lot easier now!


As you can see I didn't have enough roof bricks, so I decided to build it old-style with plates. Adding those 1x1 tiles gives a nice effect I think. I don't know if someone else has used this method before, anyway I came up with that myself.

As you can imagine, building this dormer was a pain. I tried several angles of the roof until I could find a good result for the valley. It's still not perfect, but as close as I could get.









I'm especially fond of the column design. It took me some time to come up with those volutes though. Minifig hands are useful, not only on spaceships :) The lamps were a last minute build...figured it would be better to have some lights.








Of course there is an interior.



The roof is fully detachable.



Lots of books here.







Well, there are stairs...up and down...unfortunately you can't open the roof itself, so it didn't make sense to furnish the attic...



Love this picture!



Here you can see the construction of the doors. It may not look difficult at first, but consider that I had to use one door upside down in order to make a double door. In addition I wanted to build the windows in line with the other windows. I'm glad that I didn't give up on this one...
And just in case you wondered...she's buying a copy card for the copier on the right ;)








Leave a comment if you like it! ;)
Or tell me what to improve if you don't...

You reminded me I have a book outstanding I have to return to the library. Great work! I am sure many LEGO mini figures will be borrowing books from it!

An outstanding creation, a very complete design with interiour finished. The roof is wonderful - I have made several real roof with old irregular roof terracotta tiles, and the irregularity of your Lego roof recreate this effect. And making the design effects by affordable bricks available to most gives it a top 10+ one 1-10 range.

it looks amazing,the interior is quite detailed,and functional,the ambiance is in accordance with the theme! all s been said about the exterior,except maybe,more props,[fire hydrant,bicycle rack] but,it really does nt take away from this build,since,the period of it is wide,incredible work!

Quoting Jack Graham Oh. My. God. This is absolutely STUNNING. I give it 5/5. I know it would have been a lot more expensive, but you could have used actual books. Either way, the roof and Ionic columns, as well as the architecture in general, are absolutely amazing. I love this creation.
Thank you! Actually I do own a few of these books, but in my opinion they are far too huge for minifigures, they may work for a Harry Potter style library, but not for this...

Quoting Sebeus I It's beautiful, very creative use of those wheels on the pillars, I was wondering how you did the double doors, very creative to put one upside down, great job. Btw, I hadn't noticed yet what a great builder you are, I should have added you much sooner (as a favourite builder)
Thank you Sebeus! :)

Quoting 2x4 . Ich bin schon gespannt wie es in natura aussieht. Ich bin Freitag nachmittag bei der Messe und am Montag den ganzen Tag, vielleicht sehen wir uns ja dann dort.
Morgen bin ich eher nicht dort...werd vermutlich übers Wochenende mal als Besucher vorbeischauen, weiß aber noch nicht wann. Am Montag bin ich aber jedenfalls dort um mein Lego wieder abzuholen ;) Dann sehen wir uns ja vermutlich eh! ^^

The more I look, the more I can see how much work this build truly is! Wow, you used Mini-fig hands to hold up the wheel hubs as part of the capitols! The amount of detail is great! That is a ton of 1x2 plates (books). The roof is well done too. Really nice work here!

Quoting 2x4 . WAHNSINN! Du solltest öfters Häuser bauen, es ist wirklich unglaublich genial gebaut. Diese ganzen Details - großartig. Ich weiß gar nicht was mir am besten gefällt, das Dach, die Inneneinrichtung, der Eingangsbereich. Ich hoffe Du bringst es mit auf die Modellbaumesse.
Danke dir Stefan! Die Bibliothek ist ja für das Gemeinschaftsprojekt gedacht, also sofern ich da nicht irgendwie verhindert bin, würd ich schon gern hinkommen ;)

Quoting nickeal1 . very nice job! the roof's texture looks great, and i like all the books. but i would have liked it more if there was a attic full of dusty, old books. and, the fireplace, hum.. i haven't seen one of those in a library before... couldn't it burn the books? oh well.. still a superb MOC for a first try at cafe-corner style. one last thing, i laughed when i saw the girl hand a $100 bill to by a copy card! ha! ~nickeal1
well, you wouldn't laugh at all would you go to university in Vienna...a copy card for 1000 copies costs about 50 Euro, which is about 73 Dollar ;) Also about the fireplace, yeah, you are right...that's exactly what my girlfriend said, but I really wanted to include a chimney. Oh, and actually I was inspired by 'The day after tomorrow' where they burn the books at the fireplace...so I guess that's fine :D Thanks for your comment :)
