Four medieval shops. Mixing of European and American building techniques.
About this creation
As normal for me, I can't seem to build much until the pressure is on to get stuff done for a show. With a display in 2 days, I am cutting it close. Yesterday I completed two houses and was semi unhappy with them. So chalk that up to a learning experience. Fortunately, these new shops are much more pleasing to the eye.
My previous two houses used 1x1 bricks and plates double stacked for the timbers. I didn't like the look so much, so borrowing from some creations I had seen on Lugnet and some others on 1000steine, I went with single stacked plates and 1x1 round bricks.
These buildings are lacking interior details and as such, don't have any assigned function, like bakery or something. Nevertheless I tried to give each shop character to set it apart from the others.
