I'll echo AK, this will be extremely hard to beat. Its size is just so incredible! This is one of those mocs that will go down in history, years from now I will be able to look at this and still be amazed. Snotting the wood tiles like that is something I will have to be doing from now on, it just looks so awesome.
You would rather be building right now.

This is excellent. The woodwork is very convincing and I like its compactness.

Awesome work, Fraslund! The woodwork is unbelievable! :)
I wouldn't be surprised if this build took the category.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! And don't listen to that crazy AK guy lol! You guys are a collection of ridiculously great builders. I am sure there will be some (and have already been) amazing builds to come.

I build too slowly to enter more than a few categories, but I wanted to challenge myself with this one. I had always wanted to try and do the wood paneling and have a multi-story Tudor building of this scale. I was worried about the scale initially, but I am happy with how it turned out.

As others mentioned, the wood paneling is top notch, love the details on this one. The MOC has a very polished feel to it, I can tell you spent a lot of time making sure everything is just right. The walls you put around the border are a nice touch and gives a nice finish.
