I made some modifications to the 6_8 model. The #316 blocks were removed, the tower is a little taller, and both roof tops are now trimmed in yellow. It's undecided which version of this model looks better.

Feel free to express your opinion.

This small building was constructed with set #6. Note the placement of the #212 roof tiles. Two corner roof tiles are placed together to form a roof valley. It's a technique normally used on larger constructions.

Have fun with this construction. It's a small building with big ideas.

6_8 (church)

Here's another church constructed from set #6. There's no cross on the structure, but one can use their imagination.

It an old design that's been reworked. The inspiration came from one of the churches in UE046.pdf

With left over blocks, a small cross monument can be erected.

6_7 (St. Valentine's Day)

It's St. Valentine's Day tomorrow! Who's ready? If not, have no fear. I may be able to help. Get your Anchor Stones out and get to work.

This little design was created using set #6. Most of the model can be built by inspection. The only hidden stones are at the base of the heart, and those are two #210R blocks.

Enjoy, and don't forget the chocholate and flowers...

6_6 (church)

If you liked the last church, you may enjoy this one too. The design is very similar, and it's just as much fun to build.

Be careful when laying the trim level of the roof. The blocks need to be placed just right, or they won't support the large #5G stones. This roof technique is the same one used in both church designs. When done correctly, it creates a very stable roof. I can honestly say this design will withstand mild assaults from children.

This structure was built using a #6 block set.

6_5 (church)

Many moons ago, I made several churches for set #6. Some of them were published by Burkard Shultz. He does such great work producing official looking plans. Today I decided to give one of those churches a makeover.

I borrowed ideas from several designs as well as the Dorfkirche St. Virgil by Peter Wierer (I like the back of his church).

This is a design for set #6.
