Hi, first of all, great job!
I've always considered only the Victorians in Alamo Square to be the "Painted Ladies." The one you have build here is on Waller St. in the Haight and is actually part of a set of 4 Victorians representing the four seasons: winter, autumn, spring, summer. The one you built here is autumn.
Wow, out of everything I've been looking at in the past week, this caught my eye the most. It didn't even look like it was made out of legos until I took a closer look. That is something tough to do and definitely deserves recognition, even though its only the facade of the building. The victorian I is very nice too, I'll have to take some time to check more of your stuff. If ya got a sec I appreciate all comments and Ratings on any and all of my creations. Thanks and keep up the great work, I'd love to see some other Victorian type houses.
Really cool. That large size really lets you get some great detail in there. I love those old buildings and enjoyed them when I visited the area. Too much walkin' up hill. This is much more fun to look at now. see ya. garth

Oh wow, this is amazing. It was a real nightmare to assemble, am I right?
I really love working on these, so at first I didn't relate to "real nightmare to assemble", but then I thought back to the times when I pressed too hard or at the wrong angle on something on the second story and the whole first story disintegrated and had me down on my hands and knees gathering up sections and small pieces. Then struggling to get it all lined up and the second story reattached to the first without it disintegrating again, and yes ... I guess "real nightmare to assemble" *could* aptly describe it :-)
The intricate scrollwork throughout is just gorgeous. My head was about to explode at the sheer number of earth-orange slopes for the roof, and I was marginally relieved to find that this is only a false front.
