How to Make a LEGO Cottage

Have you ever wanted to make a house, but couldn't figure out how to make the roof? If you ever had that problem then this is the post for you.

First you will need a base plate. The plate can be any size as long as the house can fit on it.

Next you will need to make columns. I made my columns five bricks high. Use 2 by 4's to make the columns. I put windows in two of mine.

Next, set the columns of bricks in a U pattern and leave a four stud space.

In the small four stud space place a door. If you don't have a door piece then you can make your own.

On the open side of the house you can either make a large window or just add more walling. whichever one you picked it must six bricks tall.

Make the three other walls six bricks tall too.

Add the furniture before you add the roof. I put in a bed, a dining table, a chair, and a TV.

Next start the roof. I used the three stud long slopes. Add small eaves for more realism (offset from the wall).

Add small beams running under the slopes to make the roof more stable.

 Add the rest of the roof. ( The orange slope is there because I ran out of reds.)

Add a skylight or chimney for extra decoration.

If you want to you can make a back porch. You can make picnic table and barbecue.

Next, add a path way headed to the house.

Lastly, add hills, flowers, trees, and ponds.

What kind of houses will you make and how big will they be?
