The main intention of this house was to explore the possibilities of roof tiles. I bought two #6754 Creator sets (Family Home) and two boxes of roof tiles (#6119). Other elements are from Pirates #6242 and the cat was "borrowed" for the photo shoot from Green Grocer #10185 (guest appearance!).
I particularly like the way specialized bricks enable one to create valleys by joining roofs together (that was not possible with the Dutch Montini sets that I played with as a child).

hello. It's really stunning. I'm planning to build one similar.. I have 3 sets 6754 and other creator sets (for example 4956). Do you think it would be possible to build one with those pieces?
Hi Juan Carlos, You will be able to build a house significantly larger than mine with your three 6754's. The 4956 has quite a few arches. You can build them in above porches or windows to great effect. Good luck! I can't wait to see your model.

Stunning! I still don't see how you have so many red slopes..
Thanks, Freeling ++! The combination of the 4 sets described above actually gave me a lot more roof slopes than I used in the house on the pictures. The reason that I had to buy 2 boxes of #6119 was to get ridge and valley tiles, as the family home set didn't include them.

Great! The red roof and tan walls really work well together.
Thanks! My ultimate dream would be to have a box full of grey roof slopes in all shapes and sizes - I settled for the red slopes because they were easily obtainable. I seem to have missed the boat with the "Model Town House" #4954 which came out in 2007 (currently discontinued). The latter actually had black roof tiles and tan walls - close enough for me!
