Finally a blue door for the 2 by 4 by 6 frame, Finally a blue door for the 2 by 4 by 6 frame, Finally a blue door for the 2 by 4 by 6 frame, and a round 1 by 1 brick and a round 1 by 1 brick yellow transparent. So let’s get started! Let’s start off with the base of our wall. I’m just going to use a 1 by 10, I’m going to place it right here I’m just going to use a 1 by 10, I’m going to place it right here and a 1 by 6. This is just for demonstration purposes. Your wall can be any size, length, or height. Next I’m going to be placing a 1 by 4 right here, Next I’m going to be placing a 1 by 4 right here, Next I’m going to be placing a 1 by 4 right here, and this is where our door’s going to be. Let’s begin the first level of our wall. Take a 1 by 2, place it here and a 1 by 10 to start off the base. Now to start off with the second level of our wall, let’s just take two eyelets, I’m going to drop them down right here. This is going to be our first level to attach our siding. Second, let’s take three more eyelets. We’re going to place them on the other side of the door here. A 1 by 4. And finally to finish this off, three more eyelets. Next let’s use four 1 by 2 bricks. We’re going to place each one on top of one another. Next let’s use four 1 by 2 bricks. We’re going to place each one on top of one another. Next let’s use four 1 by 2 bricks. We’re going to place each one on top of one another. So we have a nice wall element here. So we have a nice wall element here. You’re going to need to make three of these.
Just to save time, I already made two more. We’re just going to set these … one here on one side of the door, one on the other side of the door, and one on the very end here. We have a 1 by 6 opening here. This is going to be for our window, and it’s going to be four bricks high. Next I’m going to take a door that will fit in a 4 by 6 frame. I’m going to take just a stud.
Any color will do. I’m using a grey. Make this for a doorknob. And I”m going to place my door inside of a 2 by 4 by 6 door frame. And I”m going to place my door inside of a 2 by 4 by 6 door frame. It can go in any way.
I’m going to put it on this side here. I’m just going to simply drop this door in like so. And we’re going to take our door and we’re going to drop it right on top of this plate here so it sticks out. Yes I know it looks weird. You’ll get where I’m coming from here. Next let’s begin the construction of the window. I’m simply going to use a 2 by 6 white plate and a 1 by 6 tile. We’re going to place it on one side here. We’re going to place it on one side here. This is going to be the inside of the window frame. And I’m going to take a 1 by 2 track piece, we’re going to take three of these, we’re going to do the whole front of this here. we’re going to do the whole front of this here. This is going to be the window ledge of our window. This is going to be the window ledge of our window. We’ll set that aside. Take three of thee 1 by 2 by 3 frames Take three of thee 1 by 2 by 3 frames and glass that fits in a 1 by 2 by 3 frame,
we’re going to insert it in here. I already saved some time. I already got these other ones assembled. I already saved some time. I already got these other ones assembled. I already saved some time. I already got these other ones assembled. And we’re going to simply come and we’re going to start dropping frame down on top of our track pieces. We have a nice little window here. We have a nice little window here. And finally a 2 by 6 white plate, we’re going to place it on the top here. And simply we’re just going to drop our window in where it’s sticking out like so. where it’s sticking out like so. You can see how everything here is flush at the top, and everything inside is smooth. Now finally we need to crown our final row above our door and window with eyelets. I’m going to start off with a 1 by 1 eyelet brick, we’re going to place it along this side here first by the door. See how this is really not stable. We’re going to sue a 1 by 4 eyelet, We’re going to sue a 1 by 4 eyelet, we’re going to place it here.
This is going to lock things in. Now I want to kind of get this one secured too.
So I’m going to take another 1 by 4 eyelet. Yes I have a white because I ran out of tan. Drop them along the top here.
Now everything is starting to get locked in place. We’re going to take two more 1 by 1 eyelets, We’re going to take two more 1 by 1 eyelets, we’re going to drop them in the middle here. Another 1 by 4 eyelet. Another 1 by 4 eyelet. And finally our last 1 by 1 to kind of lock in the corner. Everything is pretty sturdy. Now let’s begin our siding for our wall. Let’s start off with one 2 by 8 plate, Let’s start off with one 2 by 8 plate, and we’re going to start installing and we’re going to start installing the tan slopes on the plate. And we’re just going to start covering this up. Start from the bottom to the top. If they get a little crooked, that’s fine.
We’ll fix that later when we’re done. Just keep going up here and you coat it over. So it doesn’t matter what color plate you use. Just any color’s fine. I just had black on hand.
Tan will be fine. White …. You can even use pink or even purple, or whatever color you have. It won’t be seen. So it’s not a big deal. Unless you’re going to have the side exposed, but we’re not going to need that here on this project. And our last row here. Now I’m going to take a smooth tile. I’m just going to smooth this our or anything will work. Now I’m going to take a smooth tile. I’m just going to smooth this our or anything will work. I want to get my bricks lined up here. And once they’re all lined up and stuff, And once they’re all lined up and stuff, take this and place it. Now I’ve already made two of these. take this and place it. Now you need to make two of these. I’ve already got a second one made. I’m going to place one of our panels here on the side of the door, I’m going to place one of our panels here on the side of the door, and one on this side of the window here. This kind of locks things in nicely. Now for between the door and window, you can make another one of these and drop it down in here, but I’m going to try something different. I”m going to put a porch light on here with siding. Let’s start off with another 2 by 8 plate. We’re going to put some more slopes on it, but I want to go up to the sixth stud. So I’m going to cover the first five studs high with slopes. So I’m going to cover the first five studs high with slopes. So I’m going to cover the first five studs high with slopes. And I’ll show you the little magic here of this. It doesn’t matter of they’re crooked.
That’s pretty bad. It doesn’t matter of they’re crooked.
That’s pretty bad. Sit them on the desk here and flatten them out. I’m just going to go ahead and flatten these out now. Because now we’re going to come in and we’re going to put our porch light holder. So simply we’re going to take a 1 by 2 plate So simply we’re going to take a 1 by 2 plate and a 1 by 2 jumper, we’re going to place them on top of one another here. This is going to hold our porch light. Then we’re going to drop it down here where our sixth row is. And then we’re just going to continue with the last four here with studs. And then we’re just going to continue with the last four here with studs. And then we’re just going to continue with the last four here with studs. I mean with sloped tiles, sorry. Where we have a wall element here with a stud. Where we have a wall element here with a stud. Where we have a wall element here with a stud. That’s where we’re going to attach our porch light. So simply just set this down in here. Now let’s begin the construction of the porch light. Now let’s begin the construction of the porch light. Let’s start off with a black tap Let’s start off with a black tap and a yellow transparent 1 by 1 brick. We’re just going to place it on top here. And finally a 1 by 1 black stud, we’re going to place it on the top. So we have a nice light fixture. Simply going to come in here and we’re just going to set this in here inside the eyelet. So nice nicely positioned light fixture. So nice nicely positioned light fixture. So nice nicely positioned light fixture. See it’s nice and perfect and it matches the decor.

Just keep putting these 1 by 1 slopes on here. Just keep putting these 1 by 1 slopes on here. Got to cover the whole plate. There will just be two rows high of slopes. Now we got our second row here. Very creative idea to put siding underneath a window. Very creative idea to put siding underneath a window. And our last slope. Kind of mash these edges down here to get things lined up. Kind of mash these edges down here to get things lined up. In case you’re looking for more of a rugged look, then it looks good, but I like to have it at least somewhat lined up.

  1. Thanks for subscribing! When i saw you subscribed, I thought i was dreaming! I have been subscribed to you for a while, and i love your mocs!

  2. im betting u got those roof tiles from the tower bridge (and a bunch of other sets ofcrs) anyway the way you did your window is exactly the same way i do them 🙂 (the line on the bottom coming out)

  3. I do, subscribed since 2010. He is great! but I think we all know how to build a wall, so why doesn't he just cut it out?

  4. i think you should take your time and go at your own pace, that way if people want to build as you build, then they can. it is a tutorial after all. 😛

  5. Hey jay, I need your opinion, I have had the Tower Bridge set for a while, it has been broken and vandilised, should I destroy it for peices or keep it?

  6. Beautiful. Love this look. Every time I watch one of your tutorials I realise I need to go and buy extra pieces – things I never thought I would ever have a use for!

  7. Yes I made a knock off of your Amityville house today. It has my first ever shutters made from tiles+brackets which I got from your tutorial. The house has no interior however as I just restarted on Lego 6 weeks ago and am still stocking up on pieces. Also today I found a local Bricklink shop with 2000 tan 2/3 slopes on a slashed price clearance so stocked up on those for a future shingled house.

  8. yep at .035 cents Australian each and free local postage you can expect a rather large house covered in tan siding down the track! I keep coming back to your tutorials: while there are plenty of stunning MOCs pictured on the web, yours seem to be the most feasible using basic, easily obtained pieces. They aren't that fiddly but with great results.

  9. i built a lego monster house its really big! too bad a don't have a phone or camera to record it to post on my channel 🙁

  10. Using a tile to straighten those slopes is a cool idea. I might use that to help me straighten slope pieces.

  11. on 1:36 i cant find the "plates with tracked". I am working in ldd and i want to find my brick. can anyone give the number of the brick or something like that?
