The good thing about Roman buildings..there´s so many different types based on a similar design! :-D This one could be a pair of merchants residences..not quite rich enough for a town house/Villa but not so poor that they have to live in an insula.
A "clever" bit of construction was required to get the centre Support constructed
Lordy, you'll be living in Paulchester soon. Very good mode;;ing.ReplyDelete
Paulchester...I like the Sound of that ! :-DDelete
Yes it's a good name but don't sound good for a Roman Town !Delete
(better for a medieval one).
Why not "Bodsa Villae" ? "Bodsiloninum" ? "Paulus Bodstoniae" etc...
Again a great work !!
Perfect! Optimum! :-)ReplyDelete
Great building once again! I'd pay for such a piece of art.ReplyDelete
how much ?:-D
Beautiful, once again!ReplyDelete
A wonderful villa. Extremely desirable for any Roman nobleman to make his home!!ReplyDelete
These Roman's certainly know how to build decent houses!ReplyDelete
Valde bene! ;-)
Great work PaulReplyDelete
Great work on that roof Paul! I can imagen that this wasn't a simple job! Fantastic building all the way!ReplyDelete
Excellent progress, but where will you store all these creations? I find myself with boxes of buildings for various periods and projects.ReplyDelete
Wow! That's a bit special. how did you manage the roof tiles? What material did you use?ReplyDelete
Thanks Darrel. In the buildings for bods section there´s an "how to2 which Shows how the roofing tiles are made...it´s easy really when you know how :-DDelete
Hi, Mr. Bods. I am enjoying your scratchbuilding project. I've had trouble for awhile browsing thru your blog. I'm back.ReplyDelete
Hi Jay. A lot of Blogs are not showing up properly..add to that (for me personally) the work load has increased and Looks to increase more, I can´t get around the Blogs/Forums as much as i want to..come to that,..paint as much either :-(Delete
I have enjoyed your series of Roman terrain building threads and look forward to more.
Thanks Tony. At the Moment a new (bigger) Forum is under construction..with a basilika etc....the old one will become a 'macellum"Delete
Very impressive work Paul !!!ReplyDelete
A very posh abode, I'd live there if it was a little bigger!!ReplyDelete
Very Cool Paul.ReplyDelete
Another superb Roman house!ReplyDelete
Lovely stuff! I am so going to steal your roof tiles idea! I was already experimenting with ribbed carton but the way you use it is simply brilliant! Why didn't I think of that?ReplyDelete
Love your work! I was just wondering what material do you use for your walls?ReplyDelete
The walls are made using 1cm thick styrofoam, then they get a thin layer of PVA smeared onto the outsides and then they are dipped into playground sand.
