Team "Legion Of Virile Energetic Moccers Unified For Frivolous Ingenious Naughtiness" entry for the category "Cafe Corner Building".
About this creation
First off, let me apologize for the lack of street action in the main picture. The MOC (as you will see in the following photos) does in fact have minifig action, but somehow during the shooting of the main photo they were knocked away/removed for transportation.





But yeah, here's my Cafe Corner Building entry. Having never purchased, built, or even seen a Cafe Corner set in person, I had -- quite honestly -- not much of an idea on how they were built. After looking at a couple pictures from the seasonal LEGO magazine, I saw that the building only takes up about half, or even a third, of the baseplate.



Then I had to take in account that I had very minimal bricks of any color that you usually see in a colorful Lego(R) set. So naturally I built in the architectural style that I am most familiar with: castle.









Seen as the epitome of historical buildings in Brickville (real original town name, eh?) Stevenson building was passed down through several generations of the Stevenson family until finally being donated to the town council as a garden and art display.











This is probably my favorite picture of this creation...and I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to the zoom function on my camera.













In this photo you can see the statues that decorate the interior quite well (for me not possessing Alex Eyler's lighting skillz that is).























While the ground level is open to the public as a place to see and off art, the second level (reached by trap door) is where the grounds keeper spends his weekends.











Here is a picture of the top level removed.


















Well, I guess that's it for this category. Good luck to the rest of the teams and happy building!

Great build! It does have a slightly different style from TLG's Cafe Corner sets, but I like it. This is definitely a creative use of castle building skills.

This building is majorly detailed in it's design. The curved sections are done very well.

Quoting Shannon Young I like the building, but it is not in fact to Cafe Corner Standard. (The building's footprint, at the edges of the baseplate anyway, should be 16 studs front to back, with 8 studs in front for the sidewalk and 8 studs in back for the alley or whatever.) Congratulations on bamboozling the real judges, I would have felt duty-bound to DQ it.
Ah well, I'm sure the judges would have specified the dimensions if they were that important. I mean, I didn't even know what they were until you mentioned them.
Quoting Blake Buehl You claim you have no Cafe Corner style sets. Please explain the gold woodwork piece above that doorway. Bricklink?
Yep, definitely BrickLink. I don't really buy sets anymore. Though I believe those pieces were available in the viking sets as well.

Excellent. It reminds me of an older downtown building. I like the little archway with the statues!

JD - you did an amazing job on this, and where others have made up for mediocre builds with extra minifig action - yours needs to make up for nothing. The couple in the back (are they getting married?) caught my eye, and I thought: "He nailed it!" Five (5) points to you. Lee.

Nice one JD! I really like how the grey brings the viewers attention directly to the brown pieces. Overall, a very good build.

I like the build, but I'm disappointed with the amount of mini figure action and lack of playability. Those were both clearly asked for in the category, and they fall short in your creation. The build is wonderful, but I am wondering what's going on in that top part and why we didn't see it. Nice work, but I can only award 3 points.
