Fun experiment Josh, remember these I did after KS?
The only pain in cutting them is the gable end walls are much thicker than the roofing areas.

Can't wait to see the new pin and interior. :)
Yes! I did remember. They are my inspiration for this build. Now I just have to clear space around my bandsaw.

Nice build! I am excited to see the interior! You could maybe use sewer walls for the base as they have smaller footprints and could fit your optimal dimensions better for a good look on the outside.
I'm not sure using sewer walls would give me the stability I need as it's currently pretty top-heavy. But that idea has me thinking of other ways to use sewers in different ways. Thx!

Traditional Tudor Look

I've been wanting to build a more "traditional" Tudor looking building so I used the 2x4 stone floors from the Castles KS to get that smaller bottom.

I thought it'd be fun to use the old stairs from the original Dungeons KS which has that door on them... and have a door inside as well... I'll post a pic of that along with the house being all done up inside.

Some issues:
- the building still feels top-heavy to me. Probably due to the thickness of the floors and the excessive overhangs. An overhang that was the thickness of a wall would probably be about right.
- the roof is problematic and I'd like to add a functional attic, but in order to do that I'd have to chop the roofs in half... which I might try... just do 2 which would give me the 4 halves I'd need.
- the hole in the floor for the stairs being only in that one spot is problematic with certain layouts. having a 2nd version where it's slid to the other side would give all possibilities for positioning (all other considerations aside, ie. manufacturing costs, this would be the optimal solution. As it is, I'll also probably cut some of my floors to have this configuration or sculpt and cast some so I can have thinner, fancier floors which provide less of an overhang, maybe)
- the 3-direction peg doesn't line up with a single peg when needing to add a wall to the interior to create multiple rooms on a 4x4 area floor. I'll post a pic of this along with a custom peg I made that fixes this... once I can find the custom pegs I made.
