Introduction: Knex House

Great idea for a hideout, or place for your pet to sleep(hence the hole on the door). it uses quite a few pieces, but it is really cool, and it has a functioning door handle.

Pieces:

Connectors:

Grey 1 socket =47
Orange 2 socket (straight)=44
Grey 2 socket (angle)=4
Red 3 socket=11
Green 4 socket=10
Yellow 5 socket=108 (one will be cut)
White 8 socket=81
Purple half circle 3-D=50
Blue circle 3-D=78

Rods:

Green=66
White=291
Blue=95
Yellow=145
Red=100
Grey=43

Other:

Blue rings=8
Y clips=5
"n" (Tan/blue) 1 socket connectors=5
1 medium rubber band

Total=1191 pieces

Step 1: Sides

Step 3: Finish

    If you could make this have multiple floors, I would be even more impressed!

    im actually gonna try to attempt this, by making the chair from Mr. Muggle and then shortening its legs, and get rid of the back-rest thing.

    Easily, Just use 3D connectors at the joints and make a sheet about halfway up. For pets, at least.

    This is wonderful, I love it.I play Legos in it sometimes, its great!

    I built this a while ago with my other account but it is really neat. But it uses a ton of pieces.

    i dont think i have enough pieces......... can you make a smaller house? i have a cat and he just wanders around and never sleeps but he would probably sleep in that though.

    Just downsize this one-use smaller rods, or just make the walls smaller, or just large enough for your cat.

    dude sypran that house is awesome

    reminds me of what i built a long time ago

     wow you must be like idk THE BEST!!!! THAT LOOKS SOOOO AWESOME!!!!!! (i know u cant post it i mean come on ITS HUGE!!!)

    ummm I took this a part like over... 11 years ago, the picture shows basicly exactly how it was made

     i can see how to make most of it but not really most of the part close to the Left Edge

    oh well.. srry I forgot over the years... all I know really is that it had a draw door that didnt work to well, even for a 6 year old so

    I made a bed, no picture cause it broke it was made from knex and it had 4000 pieces, i jumped on it! It can support sleep with 100% knex and pillows with ergonomic editing.

    it isn't necessarily using too many pieces. most are for supporting the door, which is quite heavy for the frame, and the roof. i guess you could use all greys and red crossbeams instead of the yellow with the red crossbeams.

    i just want to say that it is really good, but only for people with that many pieces, and they will probably build something like the SR-V1. it is cool, but the huge 'negative' piece count is really killing the 'positive' originality and usefullness. and i don't think an outraged pet can't destroy those walls. so it is more of a cathouse, not suitable for dogs.

    yes, i agree with the piece thing. i did mainly make it for my cats, and the Sr-V1 uses a lot more pieces than ill ever have(just for a yellow connector count, it uses 335) and this house used most of my pieces. maybe ill make a smaller version.

    Does the SRV1 uses less pieces then this???
