Another roman house

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
Front entrance
Rear.

    2. Yes it's a good name but don't sound good for a Roman Town !
      (better for a medieval one).
      Why not "Bodsa Villae" ? "Bodsiloninum" ? "Paulus Bodstoniae" etc...

      Again a great work !!

  6. Excellent progress, but where will you store all these creations? I find myself with boxes of buildings for various periods and projects.

  12. 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?
