Very nice indeed. Although historically innacurate. Tudor Style houses like Siskind's Blacksmith Shop were made for the weathly. Nobility or merchant class. These people had much money and built large houses. It is unlikely someone would construct a house so small. Its like a team of 10 horses pulling a one man kart. If you were going to build a house like that it would be big. Probably no architect would build a house that size.

Although I do really love the building and would love to have one in my town. You have inspired me again LOTL.

Cool! A medieval beatnik!

Nice MOC, Nathan. It proves that small MOCs can be just as good as big 'uns.

That is really neat, and highly detailed for it's size. One question, how do you get upstairs?

Yeah, it is overkill big time, but it was fun to build!

Nice house Nathan!!! It proves that not everyone was a big rich nobleman or merchant, but some pretended to be by building mini style. Very nice, and adds some humor to a medieval setup

He meant this piece for the quill, I think.

He might be successful and just built small for the fun of it...

I'm not saying it is bad. But it is unlikely a tudor house would be built without a chimmeny.

But its not the point this is LEGO. And this is one of my favorite mocs! I want to make a whole bunch off little houses like this. Seriously this is one of my favortie houses.

P.S. Do you have any of Scribbles poem?
