House at Bron-Y-Aur Stomps on other Minifig-scale Castles

Name of Model: Bron-Y-Aur
Created by: - Derfel Cadarn - (Luke Watkins Hutchinson)
Found at:
Details: Although this spectacular minifig-scale cottage isn't really based on the famous cottage of the same name used by Led Zeppelin in 1970 (sorry, Friends, but That's the Way it's gotta be), I'm going to assume that the name was meant as a nod anyway. Both the landscaping and the architecture here are striking in detail, design, and technique. The subtle use of dark brown, bright green, and dark green works surprisingly well. The tudor style comes off particularly strong, and no small 1x1 element was spared in making the textures on the fence, chimney, or the walls. There are only three photos here, but they're all fantastic and full of life-like details.

This is Thursday's model of the day
