Huts in town

Tim Goulds House

As part of my patriotic duty I bring you all my latest bit of fun: a generic Australian worker’s cottage. These are quite common in certain suburbs in most Australian cities and date back to the turn of the 20th Century. I kept the design fairly simple to facilitate repetition and variation, just like the real things.

    clothes rack????

    It’s a Clothesline (d’uh) most definetly a Hills Hoist Rotary Clothesline made from galvanised sumthin or other. Great for swinging around on until you got bigger than your brother and it ended up lopsided.

    Or was that just me?

    Nice to see a non-stereo typical piece of Australiana in the lego’d world.

    Ha! As soon as I saw that Hills Hoist I thought “I wonder if this guy’s an Aussie?”

    Anyway, just brilliant. If I wasn’t home in Melbourne I’d feel homesick :)

    Does induce nostalgia though – between us, my friends and I have rented more than one of these great little places, Hoist included (for the uninitiated, Hoists are best utilised covered with a tarp to protect the barbie from Melbourne’s awesomely retarded weather).
