I think, for completeness, you'd want a bit more.

Single Pieces -
* From above
**Upright (a square)
**Pointing "North"
*From the side
**Upright (which would be pretty similar to the "North")
**Facing left (different from west because you can see it's laying down)
**Facing right (same)

for Treehouse.  And then there's all the nests and stacks.
