I've been following DC's Guide on medival building, and found some of the tecniques very interesting and useful. Since the best way to learn is to try it out on your own, I went ahead and made a house.

The house is intentionally done very plainly, without ornaments, as it was built as a farmer's house. I used sand green as it is one of the best colours in my opinion and combined it with the use of 'stoned' corners.

One of my favourite learned 'tricks' are the window shutters and the roof endings. There's no interior included, as this build was mainly intended as a 'study' model. Also, this was my first build where I tried out a different setup for photography, including a white background, and some photoediting.

Nice! The only thing it really needs is some windows on the back wall, which is feeling a little bare at the moment.

If you ever feel like giving it an interior, you should modify the house so that it can be taken apart w/out having to deconstruct it. Some technic pins would work for that!
