    Tropical Paradise

    created by TnT54 on 2013.11.08

    Main Section
    Hey everyone! Remember me saying that I was going to try some "other stuff"? Well, here's the first of those. The first picture may not look that "appetizing", but take my word for it, what's on the inside and the underside will be well worth your support.
    So, since we've got a picture of what I call the "front" of the house, let's talk about it and other things you can see here. First of all, the little minifig in front of the door is there just for "fun". He does not have to be included with the set. If any 'figs were included, I suggest that there are only two and that they both be dressed appropriately with "tropical clothing". I'll explain why there should only be two later. So what's with all the stone and the red thing on the bottom of the set? That's supposed to represent an underwater cave. And the red thing is a crab (the single piece, F.Y.I.). The tan plates above the underwater cave is the beach line. As you can see, there is a small board walk leading to the front door. You can also see the "porch" lights. You can also see a balcony on the side of the house on the second floor. On the roof, there's a satellite dish and a (random) antenna. That's about all I can talk about in this picture, let's move on to the next.

    Ok, here's a picture with roof piece #1 off. Now, this seems a little stupid (even to me) that I took this picture of the roof off...and didn't even show what's on the inside. Well, hold on. I got this worked out! Really, the point of this is to show the balcony better. Ooooh, look at the nice custom chairs (really, the only part that makes it custom is the arm rests). You can also see that there are windows near the very top of the 1st roof, which raise above the 2nd roof. You'll see why (sorry I keep doin' this to you!). On the 2nd roof piece, there's just a little more random detail and devices on the roof. Next picture! Oh, and notice I'm keeping from showing you what's under the "water". You've got to wait until the last picture to find out!

    Alright! In this picture, roof piece #2 has been removed, and you can better see what's on the first floor. The bedroom! This is where it might be nice to explain why I say to only have two minifigs (oh, should have said one male and female). This house was actually only designed for two. That shouldn't be a problem though, because most of LEGOs house sets don't have multiple (actual) rooms. You've probably noticed that there's lot of windows in this house. Well, this is a beach house...or "tropical paradise", so why wouldn't there be a lot of windows? Anyway, for the bedroom, in only covers half of the second floor, and then there's a ledge where "you" can look over to the first floor to see what's going on there. Going back to the second floor, I also included a clock, and dresser. Oh, and also the door that leads to the balcony outside. Please, please notice the tile-work. Doesn't it look nice? When I built this, I thought, "This is supposed to be a shiny, tropical place, so I need bright colored pieces and tile". I think I did that really well. Tell me if you think I did it well to by supporting! Next picture...

    Here is the aerial shot of the first floor. I have three types of flooring presented here. The first is more tile work. This time with a different pattern that was actually very hard for me to make and may seem as if randomized (but let me tell you, it's not randomized!) The area with the tiles is the kitchen. On the top you can see two drawers, a fridge, a stove with oven, a sink with two bowls, cabinets on top, and a coffee maker with coffee cup in it (Note, fridge doesn't open). Also in the kitchen area is a table, six chairs (which are the same design as the ones on the balcony). On the table are two Pineapples and a cherry (Note, the pineapples and cherry are supposed to be in the bowl, but we know that LDD doesn't allow for that). WAIT, back up! Did I just say "six chairs"....I thought this house was only for two. Well, did you ever consider throwing a party?? It is a beach house, after all. The second type of flooring is "wood"! I know, thanks to LDD, you can't really see the individual bricks of the same color, but if this becomes a set, I want LEGO to know that when they make this part of the flooring, that they use 1 by "whatever length" to give it that "real" wood look. In one spot is the "TV room". Where on top of the entertainment center is the HD flat screen. Then there is a sofa (for two) and a coffee table with a lamp next to it. The last type of flooring, is a special (represented to be-) "acrylic" flooring that allows a person to see through the floor and see the water/ocean life below. This is something I really wanted in there. Mainly because it looks SO COOL and you can actually see through it and the water to see what's under. Speaking of which...let's see what's under there!

    Oh yeah. That's what I'm talking about. :)
    So, what we have here is a manta ray, two red crabs in the background (one is unseen), some rocks and sea grass, and a school of fish. Also a starfish (again, the single piece). So, since we are looking at it from this angle, I'd like to add a few more details. The first is look at the beautiful beams holding the house up! The water plates are supported by both the beams for the house and these transparent pieces as well. Hey look! Thanks for checking this out. Now I'm going to start going back and forth from HF (Hero Factory) and my take on Space Police!
