All the talk around here about buying a new house is really stressing us all out. Hopefully the deal doesn't fall through and we're packing up Lego for a new place with LOTS more room... but it looks shaky right now, sadly. That said, Mia's minifig in Legotown already HAS her dream house. It started with one of those pink Lego building sets and then became a secluded island just off the coast of the main town.
The original set was really just a facade and a stall for a horse. We tried several other ways of putting those pink pieces together but never were able to make an attractive enough house that had a proper roof and 3 sides. Fortunately, we always have a ready supply of other Lego around that are great for boosting our building capabilities. Mia's house didn't get its full renovation to this design until a coworker of Matt's gave us a bucket full of even more interesting pieces to use. Of course, one of the best sources of inspiration for making new building projects is that you have some combination of pieces that you HAVE to find some cool use for.
