The Carpenter’s Workshop & Furniture Store is the second half of the Silkwood Street MOC. It has been slightly modified to function as a separate 16×32 modular building.
The carpenter’s workshop is an old style building which mainly takes inspiration from Hagrid’s hut (official LEGO® set 75947). the light & dark gray, tan and brown colors create the stone built style and distinguishes itself apart from normal straightforward square buildings. It is small but has the basic necessities for the carpenter to make his wonderful furniture. It has a working table, wall cabinet, wood cutter & hole boring machine. The 1st floor is the living space with a bed, small kitchen, comfy chair and even a fire place with a working light.
The store keeper’s furniture shop is more modern and sleek. It has a clean dark blue & white look which exudes a bit of class and poise. The interior is equally interesting as the exterior with different furniture on display for visitors to look at and hopefully purchase. The first floor is a continuation of the furniture shop and the top floor is a living space for the store keeper with the a bed, small kitchen & dining area.
Silkwood Street is about the 3 modular buildings owned by the seamstress, the carpenter and the storekeeper. The carpenter and storekeeper are brothers. One chose to keep with the tradition; hence, the old fashioned gray stone house. The other chose to adapt with the progress of society; hence, the more modern style building. The seamstress, carpenter and store keeper all grew up together in Silkwood Street. The carpenter & storekeeper are brothers who are both secretly in love with the seamstress since they were teens. Now one holds a ring made of wood, the other holds a ring made of gold. How this story continues on will depend on the creator who builds it.
Building Silkwood Street
The design of Silkwood Street was split in half to help newer fans of LEGO® who want to create MOCs on a smaller scale (i.e. 16×32 with relatively fewer parts to collect). For collecting the parts for the Carpenter’s Workshop and Furniture Store, it is highly recommended to look into the official LEGO® set 75947 (Hagrid’s Hut). A large number of pieces were used from that set.
The creator may choose to purchase the instruction for the complete Silkwood Street. If the builder, purchases the whole design, they do not need to purchase the 2 separate MOCs as they will have the same instructions.
The creator may also only purchase the other half of the design – the Seamstress Shop
