MOC - CITY Hardware Store & other buildings

Post by Lightningtiger on Mon 13 May 2013, 2:40 pm

It's been a few weeks since I posted any designs and with the coming of Town Square I decided to start designing buildings to join that set.....well when I can buy it.
Through out European cities you can find small inner city hardware stores so here is my take on them.
The painter's roller has come in just in time eh ?
Now what's going on top....well either a second floor for giftware/kitchenware/glassware or a different business all together....an office of some sort....any ideas or suggestions ?

Oh, an example of a real one I guess would be a good idea right ?
Keep watching ! legohappy
