Interiors of the Neighborhood

Hi, friends. One of the things I really like about the Stoelzel Structures buildings I've been making is the beautiful interiors. Carl Stoelzel, the artist and designer, has done an excellent job on the interior textures of these buildings. So, without further yakking, here's some pics of some of the Stoelzel neighborhood house interiors.
The Cape. This pic shows the second floor (first for our friends across the pond). 
The Cape. Ground floor. 2nd floor has been removed.
The Farm House. 2 floor. Some of my walls are rather wonky. I love the different textures Carl used on the floors, especially the bathroom (lower right) and the kitchen downstairs.
The Farm House. Ground floor. Kitchen along right side with old linoleum and checkered wallpaper. Even a rug in the living room.
The Split Level. Upper view. I haven't finished the 2nd set of stairs.
The lower portions of the Split Level. I made some crude stairs with Hirst Arts bricks.
The upstairs of the LJ house. Still need to make the stairs to connect the floors. Master bath and bedroom to the left, Man Cave to the right.
The main portion of the 1st floor. Family room and bath to the right, garage, kitchen and dining room to left.
The kids' portion of the house. 3 bedrooms, bath and rest of kitchen. The wooden texture to the left edge is the outdoor deck.

Well, that's all for now. Thanks for looking. I hope you take the opportunity to pick up some of the Stoelzel Structures buildings. They are beautifully done with playable interiors and furnishings.

You're right Joe, the variety of textures in the flooring of these is fantastic. Gives this a unique and individual feel.

Hi, Anne. Thanks very much. Taking the pics makes me want to build another house instead of playing a scenario. :) All those great designs and textures.

Dr. Willett's Workshop said...

It looks great, great attention to details to do insides like that.

Rovanite said...

Those are really impressive inside!

Lord Siwoc said...

That....Is quite impressive! ANd good work on your behalf!!!

Sweet paper models, and looking all the more spectacular because of the agile hands of one-good-modeler...the man...LuckyJoe! Zeds beware!! You might consider posting a sign that reads: Neighborhood Watch...Zeds Keep-Out!

It's a very good work.

Stoelzel's Structures said...

Another great post Joe, thanks for sharing this. Only missing one thing.... ....barricades. Great looking layout in your own home.

This is a great addition to your previous post showing the exteriors of these wonderful models. The different coloured walls and floors adds so much to the overall look of the models. If you're going to add furniture to them then take my advice and pace yourself. Don't try to make everything at once.

PapaSpanky said...

These really are great, I going to look into them.

Luckyjoe said...

@Dr. Willett: Thanks very much. The graphics in the pdf are just too nice not to use.

@Rovanite: Thanks. Now if I can just get the gumption to do the furniture.

@Lord Siwoc: Thanks! Though I'm afraid my poor skills don't live up to the quality of the artist's work.

@Jay: Thanks very much. I like the idea about the Neighborhood Watch sign a lot.

@Pakulai: Thanks. They're such nice models they almost make themselves. :)

@Carl: Thanks very much. Once I started trying to make the interior I started getting an appreciation of how hard it is. Big difference between cutting out and pasting and actually designing. My hat is off to you, Carl.

@Vampifan: Thanks. That's very good advice about the furniture. I think I may attempt a couple of pieces here and there when I have a little bit of free time.

@PapaSpanky: Thanks very much. I think you will really like them and find them useful.

Sean said...

Yes Joe, well done. I can see now why you like to add the interiors. I wish Stoelzel did Sci Fi and Medieval/Fantasy as well.

Luckyjoe said...

@Sean: Thanks. Carl said on the previous post that he was distracted by some Victorian-inspired stuff. Maybe he 's expanding into other genres. I'd love that.

Lead Legion said...

Fantastic building job as usual Lucky Joe. Great stuff.

Brummie said...

ONE BIG WOW they look great mate. I love the attention to detail that you do with your buildings they just look fantastic

Michael Awdry said...

Oh my goodness, they are superb!

Luckyjoe said...

@Lead Legion: Thanks very much. It's easy with the right pdf.

@Brummie: Thanks. For real attention to detail, though, wait until Vampifan posts the Stoelzel Structures Cottage he is working on.

@Michael: Thanks. You're too kind.
