Updated on May 10, 2010

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

Café Corner No. 10182

The Cafe Corner Set was released in April 2007 and was the first of the Modular Houses series. It featured a detailed and realistic street corner Cafe scene with authentic interior details and also including 3 minifigures. This set contains a whopping 2056 pieces, the base measures 10 inches by 10 inches and the final building stands over 14 inches tall.

Some of the set features include a 3 floor building set on a street corner, a vertical 'Hotel' sign, opening doors and windows, café tables and umbrellas, a striped awning and one female and two male towns people. The top two stories lift off to reveal inner rooms, staircases, and handrails.

The modular design of this Corner Cafe allows you to expand the street with other sets from the Modular House series with connectors at the base of the structure. Four Cafe Corners can be joined together to make a complete City Block.

      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.
