M.O. Round 1 - Winter
Built for the 2011 MOColympics, in the category of Winter.
About this creation

A cabin in the snow, next to a frozen pond.

Link? How could I forget it?

















I had made a BrickLink order for this, but with less than three days left, I wasn't sure it would come in time for my entry. I decided not to rely on my BrickLink order, and tried to build all the things that I otherwise would have used my order for.

The main problem turned out to be the ice. I had ordered 90 trans-clear parts, as I only have enough to cover about a third of the area I wanted. So instead I was brutally forced to use SNOTted windows, I don't have enough lighter ones, so I used dark ones.


Good luck, guys, hope to see you in the next round!

Tho is very well-done! Great details! I see that you want to join my group: The Dragon council. I appreciate it that you want to join, but you have to join a group called the ministry of Mocists first. Once I see that you have joined I will accept you. Thanks! :)

Surprised i hadn't already commented on this - i keep finding more builds! Loving the ramshackle look of the house and the gradation through the white snow into the trans. Minimal colours yet 100% effective. Nice work and good luck!

Quoting Dave Kaleta LWC, So this is a really great build. You nailed the category. The house is really wonderful, and I love how you put it on the diagonal. I have a little issue with the texture of the snow. Why is it smooth of the roof and studded on the ground? Minor complaint, but might have pushed it over the top. Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave
I never noticed that, Now that you pointed it out it seems obvious. Thanks for the advice, I'll take notice next time!

Very good! I really love this creation! As Ru said it is very simple but that is what makes it look so amazing! Although I think you could have had at least one minifig in this creation and some pics of inside the cabin would have been nice. Other than that great creation!

A nice entry and I think the black windows are really effective,but you need a minifig to spice this up!

The cabin is great -- I keep expecting a haggard old ice fisherman to come out the door! You might have used a darker base beneath the smoke transclear windows to make the ice look more like a frozen pond, but that's a minor thing. I hope whoever is inside is staying cozy and warm!

Amazing! I love how you made the boards on the wall slanted slightly, it gives it sort of a run down cool old shack look. Also your snow looks very realistic. Good luck! 5/5

Another masterpiece! Great work! Love the house, so much beauty and detail! And great work on the snow landscape! Nice idea to use the darker trans clear pieces, really adds to the ice effect! The only thing I would have done is put a frozen fish in the lake :P Anyway, amazing work! Good luck ;)

Quoting The Timinater ! great design! love nearly everything. there's 3 flaws. water is too small, the black pieces on the side, and you can see the baseplates. Tip- put the bricks one stud over, so you can't see the baseplates...
I don't have the parts to make the water bigger, I don't have anymore white. (black's better than rainbow) Anyway, good idea for getting rid of the base. thanks.

Love the barrel as a chimney. The pond effect would have been better if it was completely enclosed, I think. Still, good parts usage. Good luck with your judges.
