ENG: At last the building supplies from the Danish manufacturers arrived, so the building company Helene & Son Ltd. could complete the remaining facade. The exterior of the reception rooms was rebuilt. Arne Vaa, who supervised the project, had made drawings based on the original drawings. For the pub, he proposed a more modern look, but still in keeping with it's older neighbour's style.

NOR: Endelig kom de manglende byggematerialene fra de danske produsentene, slik at byggefirmaet Helene & Sønn AS kunne få bygget ferdig den gjenstående fasaden. Eksteriøret til selskapslokalene ble gjenoppbygget etter Arne Vaas tegninger som var basert på de originale tegningene. For puben foreslo han en noe mer moderne stil, som samtidig spilte sammen med den eldre naboens uttrykk.

What a terrific facade! It all works together so well. Helene and Son are to be congratulated on a job well done - I am sure Arne Vaa is delighted with how his ideas have turned out.

Thank you Rebecca! Arne Vaa was infact quite pleased with our building company (and with himself too)!

Helene, I have yet to see anyone building a doll's house with Lego and get away with it until you. It is coming together so nicely and it fits this whole retro, 60's feel very well. Congratulations! This is inspiring.

boah, ich bin total begeistert. ich muss ehrlich gestehen, dass ich es bisher nicht realisiert hatte, dass die fassade aus lego ist - mein englisch ist doch nicht so toll, oder ich lese zu oberflächlich, weil mich die bilder mehr faszinieren. nicht nur, dass es ganz toll gemacht ist, es ist auch eine tolle idee! vielen dank für die inspiration und freude beim betrachten.

Fint nedløp!

Thank you Sans! I can't saw a straight line, so building in Lego was also my only option:)

Danke sehr Oese! Dass du nicht realisert hast dass es Lego war, ist die grösste Kompliment ich kriegen könnte!

Takk Eli, det var Sønns idé!

Thank you Jean! My children also have a lot, but I won't "steal" from them, so I often wish for Lego for my birthdays:)
