I've tried it in the past but found it looks funny to me for the Medieval house style. I have always used grey heavy paper stock under my houses and castles for floors. Not portable, but fine on a diorama table.

Yes, I did that too..

I'm a bit late to this discussion...

Indianna's pictures prompted me to try adding two bases from 3771 (Vacation Cottage) to the bottom of a framework house. They work well, giving a different finish from Indianna's (there is a step up into the house, but no 'overhang' beyond the footprint of the building). And 3771 is a much more available set on eBay (£35 for one UK example, E35 from Germany, $74 from US) than 3432/4300/4301.

That's another neat solution Graham, thanks!

A thought for you more experienced playmofriends. Is there some logic as to why the windows in the dormers open inward? All the other windows open outward and that seems much better.  ???

It's so you can clean both inside and outside each pane without sliding off the roof! The other  upstairs windows can be reached by ladder.

(That's just a guess!)

So a big thank you to Anne.  :thanks:

My new floor arrived today and fits beautifully as you can see ...



Albrecht is now busy painting in his garrett, while Martin and his musicians get on with (presumably) hymn-writing downstairs. But best of all, when I lift the house up, they come with it!  ;D

Steve.



PS, A. loved her pirate and especially the treasure!  :arrr:

You are most welcome, Steve!  So glad to see that flooring being used in such a great way.  :love:

I'm glad A. likes the pirate and the little bit of treasure. I just wish she and my granddaughter (age 4.5 years) could play Playmo together, but I guess it's a bit too long of a trip for a playdate.   ;)

Really dig the pic of all the historical figures inside the house.

:arrr:

I never realized until just now that we have TWO pirate smileys!  :arrr: :captain:

Dying to get those Rijksmuseum figures in there!
