Lego Modular Houses

Lego Modular Houses was Lego sub-series that formed part of the Lego Creator Theme and was produced by Lego from 2007 up to the present day and sets are still being released. These sets were designed so that they could be joined together in a modular fashion by joining footpaths and buildings to form a Streetscape. The street represents a 30's style design.

The Modular Houses sets are primarily designed for Adult Lego Fans and are generally intended for more advanced builders with most sets containing more than 2,000 pieces and making use of unorthodox building techniques which have not been tried before in official Lego sets. Each of the sets in the Modular Houses series contains instructions to build a townhouse style building standing at least 2 stories high and each of the sets in the series contains 3 or more minifigures.

Amazon and Ebay are a great source for these Lego sets and they can be at extremely reasonable prices, Amazon is extremely good for new copies of htese sets that can be bought immeadiately. Ebay also gives you a huge variety to choose from as well as allowing you to still find items that are no longer available

The Cafe Corner did have an interior to it, you needed to lift off the top storey or the second storey and it let you get to the inside which you could decorate.
