Bulgarian house from the Rennaisance era
Bulgarian Rennaisance house
About this creation
A typical Bulgarian house from the Rennaisance era, one of our first creations. We're planning on expanding on this theme and building a small village of Bulgarian Rennaisance houses which of course would be much more intricate and detailed...

Not much eye candy to be seen on this set, however it is a good base for further exploration of this theme. In the background you can see a minitower I built out of spare Technic parts years ago... Asya loved it so we decided not to take it apart, besides you can't really use that much Technics parts in a normal house / city, now can you :)

Unfortunately, we were out of sloped bricks, so we had to settle for a "combined approach" in order to complete the house's roof. It didn't turn out all that bad, although I must admit it is a bit tacky.



Most Bulgarian houses from that time used to have tall walls surrounding them, so using big windows on the first floor was not a very good idea. Instead, it was a rule of the thumb that representative rooms and items be placed on the second floor, where they could receive the proper amount of lighting. To tell you the truth, we didn't really decorate this house, because we were in quite a hurry, but still... It was only fair that we follow the logic and build it the way it is supposed to be.

Hi there Brickster, thanks for your comment ;] To be perfectly honest, since most of my sets were from the early 90s, I didn't have too many of those fancy new pieces, so we're a bit limited in terms of variety of bricks. Naturally, we're currently working on that, but in the meantime we can only be happy that people still enjoy such archaic looking MOCs ;)

Hello. I'm TheBrickster from Eurobricks & Classic-Town.net. I've been checking out your creations and really like this one. What I enjoy about this and your other creations is the Classic Town style that you seem to capture in your creations. These houses make me very nostalgic when I would build structures using only standard bricks, plates, and roof pieces (although this is 100 times better).

This house is beautiful! I like the use of ladders for balcony railings and the way the top floor slightly overhangs the bottom floor. Good job!

I really like your work-around for the roof. I haven't seen it too often. For houses with a tile roof using plates which show more texture due to the studs might just work better than using smooth slopes.

Hello from Germany & many thanks for your review on my Bell Tower Mansion! Even though Ive never been to Bulgaria myself, I know it out of things Ive seen in TV. This house looks really cute and pretty, and I like how its style fits so well to how old houses over there must look... The balcony is awesome, and I like how you used both slopes and little plates for the roof. Good idea & realisation! Viele Gre aus Deutschland, Steffen
