[MOC] Marko and Sascha's home (A half-timbered /post and beam building)

Posted (edited)

Marko is just about to try and return to the river to catch some more fish, while Sascha is drying the previous catch.

A small furry friend is looking with anticipation waiting for Sascha to leave.

It started out as a tryout to use a post-and-beam technique and evolved to this house.

The stone base of the house is 10x10, with some jumper magic, the bottom of the house is 9x9, before expanding to the front to 10x9 studs for the floors above and the roof.

Really cool, even looking at it for minutes I can't figure out how you did the angled beams, especially the top and bottom of the beam itself!

Great little house. Your technique for the half-timbered look is excellent.

@hoppa Thanks.

The top and bottom are cheese slopes, pushed in between those other cheese slopes.

@Feuer Zug Thanks.

@Follows Closely I agree that it would be perfect then.

Maybe that is possible but would require a more difficult construction, for example jumper plates do not exist in dark brown.

The top beam would also have to be a plate higher to accompany the offset stud of the modified brick with stud on its side and the gap would have to be filled somehow, requiring some more brackets/tiles.
