The festive season is almost upon us and that means we can let loose with the Christmas themed LEGO Ideas builds that capture our eye. Today we have a great looking submission that would look stunning on display and part of a Cityscape, introducing Round House Ski Lodge By ThomasTheCross.
At first glance the build looks impressively busy and perfect as a standalone building or part of a bigger Winter scene. The idea is based on a traditional Round House that sits are the centre of most Ski resorts. It’s a place to meet before heading out onto the slopes, or to recover afterwards with a hot chocolate or Soemthing stronger.
Since 1939, the Round House has been a refuge from the cold weather in Sun Valley, Idaho. Resting at 7,700 feet (or bricks in this case!), the lodge features a unique octagonal architecture. – ThomasTheCross
LEGO has produced a few Ski related sets over the years, more so recently within their City theme, so it is anything new persay. It is however completely different to official offerings, making it perfect for the LEGO Ideas platform and what grabbed my attention when choosing this week’s feature.
Inside the Round House is looks extremely cozy, with a roaring fire in the centre and comfy seating and dinning areas around the outer walls. It also houses a lot of Minifigure friendly services such as a Pizzeria, Bar and more. The decor is Fanta too with Skis and related accessories everywhere, including trophies from past races. It even has a toilet situated around the back of the building.
What gives it that festive vibe, for my personally, is the snowy roof, warm log fire, red & green rug and the many Minifigures all wrapped up and enjoying themselves.
Once the roof is removed you can get a good sense of how much is crammed, in a good way, into this idea. Built around a central chimney. The walls that separate the kitchen and toilet areas are the only dividers inside the building, the rest is open plan and it looks stunning. The balcony area is also a nice addition as Minifigures can sit outside and enjoy the view, watching as others have fun on the slopes.
Without giving too much away, I’d like you to view the submission itself on LEGO Ideas, so please get over there now and give your support.
