Micro Cottages (1 of 5)

Did some experimentation with micro scale cottages for possible use in future builds. Wanted to make something without gap between the wall and the roof and also try out different roof angles.


Ended up with a few designs using the 1x4 slope which gives a very high roof and a bit of a fantasy feel to it. Tried with different roof sizes and with or without the roof protruding on the sides.


Also made one simpler version with 45 degree roofs. It has a different feel to it, but the upside is that you can add texture or windows to the bottom part of the house ends, which can't really be done for the other houses.


When it comes to stability, the 7 stud roof (black one) is quite unstable while the rest are stable enough. Of course, the bars on the top are loose on all of them :)


I'm kind of leaning towards the white house with brown roof as my favourite, but in a build with many houses I would probably mix and match. What do you guys think?
