Greenhouse
About this creation

This is my entry to the Useless Piece Contest in The Contest Group. The idea was to find a seemingly useless piece, and find a use for it! As I rummaged through my large parts (that are used quite infrequently), I came across one that I know I've never used before. It is the soccer goal/carrying case piece (see it here on Bricklink) from set 3401-1. I decided to use it as a roof for a greenhouse! It turned out to be a rather awkward size of 17x9 when tilted on its side this way, but it worked out, and fits snugly on top.




Phipson's running the greenhouse?! Hmm...















Thanks for viewing!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 I usually never complain about lighting, as I m not good at it myself, but, in this case, the part is key to the piece, I don t see the part glass roof part, it seems beautyful, but, it s hard to define the shape, a new pic would fix this, for the rest, it s colorful in a very good taste, all harmonious and looks natural, bravo!
Thanks for the comment. Considering it's a transparent piece, there's really not much more I could have done with the lighting. On my screen at least, it seems to show up fine. I used a lightbox for the photos, and that amount of brightness is necessary for everything to show up properly. As for a new photo, I'm afraid that's not possible, as I've already taken this apart!

Sorry this is late, I did not realize you had snuck by. I was thinking Halhi was going to be our only entry once again. Anyway, this is a wonderful build. Since you are only one of two entrants, I am just going to ignor points all together. This is one nice use of that piece. The bigger pieces always do seem to have a singular function, and I think you made an easy goal (Yeah I know, hardy har har...) buy trying to use only one odd piece. The build is also astounding because it is very well built and looks finished. Well done, you have proven victorious.
