    I really like the looks of the stone wall, but single stone walls don't exist much in real life, as they need other masonry walls to stabilize them. I understand the temptation to slip a stone wall in on a project like this one , which showcases a lot of different construction materials. We tend to see it more in the larger scales, where buildings take a lot more space, and thus there a fewer of them.


    doing good looking stone masonry is tough, but that wall looks really good, especially the bricked in window. this is looking really good.


    are you planning or working on a layout, or are you just playing with structures at this time?

    I do know of some structures in New England, Reading to be exact, with single stone walls that are reenforced with wood on the backside. People have all kinds of problems with them. A bery strong foundation that holds both the wooden fllor and the stronge wall is necessary, or you get big cracks. My house is very old, and in one part of the basement, the foundation is made of a single row of stones, they are quite huge though and fit together amazingly. I never have any leaks and the house settled 30 years ago. I have jacked it up in a couple of places and fixed an problems. I think the inside detailing you do does add to the model. Ultimately, it just looks right.


    Kennyrach, you're an Artist. You models are believable, and inviting, I want to go there. They are also pleasant to the eyes, what more could anyone ask for? :)
