School House circa 2001-2002

School House

This is the first building I took apart today. I built this school house in 2001 or 2002, I am not really sure. This is actually the second incarnation of it. It originally sat on a 16×32 baseplate but looked pretty much the same. I remember when I built this that I was excited to build something with a grey roof. It took me a while to collect the necessary pieces to build a reasonably sized grey roof. I actually built this upside down – I built the roof first because I wasn’t sure how the roof would look and how big I could make it. Once I had the roof done, I built the building under it. I like the use of the train window glass and train windows – it gives it a slightly different look than most buildings have.

Building different colored roofs was something I tried to do and collecting some of the unusual colored slopes took a while. I never liked seeing lots of red roofs so I was thrilled when black slopes became readily available.

This second version of the school house fit in with the NCLTC neighborhood standard which dictated two rows of tiles as a sidewalk along street facing edges.
