Know how dumb I am? I’ve been using Schwartz’s house in the comic for, what, nearly a decade? Only now did I realize that its colors match its owner (especially when Schwartz wears his red and black Classic Space jacket)! It happened by accident. I wanted the LEGO Weekend Home set (#6370) from 1981 but it was a little expensive. So I just went to Bricklink and bought the parts I needed to build it. I ended up choosing black bricks instead of the original set’s blue parts, probably because it was cheaper, I could get all the bricks at one store, and I thought it looked better. Then I constructed it on a lunar baseplate and had a good chuckle at a suburban house sitting on the moon. Schwartz matching his house (he does normally have red in his Space logo, too) was pure serendipity.
