The Lego Mountain Hut – Build #2
Not my favorite build for this set, but still pretty cool.
This is the second build of the Lego Mountain Hut set. It’s a 3 in one build which means that every set comes with three sets of instructions, so you can build 3 different models with all the bricks included in the box (but not all at the same time). I’ve already reviewed the first build here.
The idea that Lego has about building 3 different sets from one package is simply brilliant. If you are like me, you buy the set, build it one time according to the instructions and then play with it for a while until it either gets taken apart or cannibalized for pieces for a MOC that I build.
But in the case of the 3 in 1 Mountain Hut, I built the first version, then carefully took it all apart, and then built the second version, and then took that apart and built the 3rd version.
That way I got to experience 3 different builds all from the same set before taking it apart and doing my own thing with the pieces.
I wonder if the three different builds were done by the same Lego designer, or if 2 or 3 different people got to make their own versions to be included. I wonder if anyone from Lego reads this blog, and wonder if they will ever get back to me, too.
Anyway, this is a fun build, but not my absolute favorite from the set (that one is actually build #3). Here are some photos, and more description below.
The Second build
For me, this was an enjoyable build and had a few different techniques that I knew about but didn’t really use in my own building before. Like the first set, this has a house, and an ATV but no mountain for the minifigure climber to go up.
Instead, the two major pieces of the mountain are incorporated into the house itself. One is part of the fireplace, and the other is part of the side wall.
This house also opens up like the first build so you can see the two rooms inside. There isn’t quite as much detail inside but there is still lots of fun things to explore.
But there is still a stream on the side of the house, as well as a little Lego built tree, and some other cool details like a lego duck.

I really liked building the mountain in this set – there is a lot of detail and nooks and crannies in it, and I just wish it was a bit bigger and had more pieces.
Would you buy 31025 – Lego Mountain Hut?
I will be buying 2 more of these sets so I can have all 3 different builds put together at the same time. Plus if I ever decide to do a MOC, I can combine the three mountains into one super big mountain.
How experienced a Lego builder do you need to be to build 31025 – Lego Mountain Hut?
The age range for this set is 8-12, which is just about right – younger builders will love to play with the set once it is built, and older Lego experts will really get into the way the different builds are put together.
