The ADOBE HOUSE (or MEXICAN HOUSE) is on BRICKLINK DESIGNER PROGRAM and could become an official set!
I created the digital model including instructions as required by the BDP and then I built the brick version as you see in these photos.
The iconic southwestern style house now in LEGO form!
This whitewashed adobe flat-roofed house is a classic example of so-called Southwestern architecture.
Adobe had been in use by indigenous peoples of the Americas in the Southwestern United States, Mesoamerica, and the Andes for several thousand years. You can still see these kind of homes in Mexico and in the southwestern of the United States indeed. It’s packed with all the details and features you’d expect to find in a house like this in the middle of the desert.
About the set
The house is a visual treat, covered with nice details, from the use of printed 1X1 round tiles on the protruding ends of the logs to the plant-covered arbors that provide shady spots on the flat roof. The use of woodgrain tiles above the windows and doors adds some welcome texture amongst the white.
The set includes eye-catching floorings reflecting the designs of Central American cultures. You can find them both outside and inside the house.
Don’t miss the chile ristras which hang next to the doors, the wrought-iron lever fountain and the Aloe Vera plant.
The set includes 7 minifigures including the master of the house Don Carlos, Señora Magda, the groom, the farmer, the housekeeper and two boys.
Fully detailed interiors!
The adobe house features a complete interiors with two floors: the ground floor with the living room, the bedroom and kitchen. Furthermore, on the left is the stable for thoroughbreds. On the upper floor there is the owner’s study and a simple but very useful toilet.
The whole interior is chock full of details that make the set very playable. You can easily lift up the four roofs to access inside and play with the utensils and surprising accessories including table and chairs, a wood stove, a complete kitchen and many more.
And it’s all so enjoyable!
With your support, hopefully we can turn the Mexican House into an actual LEGO BDP set.
