I few months ago my cousin lent me some LEGO sets so I could restore them to their original state. He wants me to reassemble all his sets from a big bin filled with a plethora of pieces.
Among these sets he has is 4956 House made in 2007. Finding the parts is not hard but I've reached an impasse and I'm wondering if anyone can help me.
When it comes to rebuilding sets I am incredibly OCD. I try and use the parts that went with the set exactly when it came from the box. For example, I always check the bottom of plates to see if the circles have a hole in them or are solid.
The House should include 77 Roof Tiles 2x4/45 degrees. My cosine has a lot of these parts in his box but they are divided into two distinct categories. Some of them have a very smooth slanted edge while others are textured. Since I did not get the set new I have a hard time knowing which parts came with the house originally.
There are not 77 of ether of the parts so I assumed he lost a lot of them. However, together there might be enough. Could anyone who owns the set tell me if their roof tiles are rough or smooth? Does the house include both? I would find this bizarre because it would be unlikely Lego used two molds for the same part in one set.
I know this is incredibly OCD but my ability to reconstruct sets out of chaos is something I take pride in. Does anyone else get this OCD when building?
Thank you very much.
