Theyíll all be beams and render.    8)

This is really taking shape now.  Looking forward to seeing how it plays out, especially the sheds, gardens etc etc. 

Can I ask if you made the well or is it commercially bought and from whom?

Cheers Gary  :)

The well is a scratchbuild. Some pieces of overflow pipe plus elements from the Lakeside Town house kit for the woodwork. The brick work is actually scaled paper glued on, which will be fine for inside, but on the outside Iíll use it to guide me when adding some GS texture.

This is going to look gorgeous  :)
Did you say you were going to infill some more of the planked panels with render to make it look a bit less Laketown?

Ta  :D

Yes, Iíd mislaid my stash of 0.25mm plasticard but Iíve found it now (itís a regular cycle of buy stuff that will one day be useful, put it where Iíll find it, forget where Iíve put it, find it, put it somewhere else,..... and repeat) so Iím planning patching-over all the timber panels and adding more beams after Iíve finished the outbuildings and added the fencing.

Basically this is playing catch-up with Whitechapel, which needs more GS work, but Iíll GS both projects at the same time.


Edit - the houses will be stuck to the baseboard when theyíre painted

Re: 17thC England: UD 28/2: the garden conundrum

Thanks Mark  :)

And now I have a conundrum..... what to do within the gardens?

Yes, they would have had veggie patches... which would be aesthetically pleasing without lots of minis piled in and trampling all over them, with the minis ending up at all sorts of angles  and heights ..... thoughts on what to do? Iím even contemplating just lawns but Iím not convinced ....

Anyways, hereís where they are at before I put some more sand down and install the fencing:





Btw, Iíve decided that the big trees will be kept back for the surrounding woodlands, as they didnít look right in the hamlet.

That is looking rather splendid now. As to vegetable patches, I'd do it, perhaps just small ones to give a suggestion, but not in each garden.

You might even put livestock in one? I wouldn't have lawns, just bare earth if you don't want to put the veggies in.

Pigs.

Many would have had a pig in the back yard at this time.  So just a churned up bit of mud would do it.

Looking good

A lot of civil war actions took place after the harvest or during the summer (if my memory serves correctly). So veggies could either be small of have already been harvested.

Very good point. So tilled earth would do.
