Tahra, do you mean the pieces used to make the first-floor floor, 30028470?

No, those wouldn't work.

I mean with the colorado floors: https://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30-05-0800

I am not sure the "cornered parts" - like this: https://playmodb.org/cgi-bin/showpart.pl?partnum=30-65-0672 - fit there... Can't remember if they're flat underneath...  :-[  My poor old head.

The black or grey floors from the old Steck train stations or hospital fit, but are very hard to find. You would need 2 end pieces
Black
30 03 9660 - End plate
Or even harder to find, grey

30 05 3250 - End plate

Thanks Tim, I'll keep an eye out.

I wonder why they chose to put these buildings out without a floor?  ???

Tim is absolutely correct.  I've partially assembled a green framework house using 2 end pieces 30 03 9660 as a floor to demonstrate - the bottoms of the wall pieces snap into the floor pieces so it stays together nicely.

I swear the photos were right-side-up when I posted them!   ::)  Anyway, the message comes through. 

I had those floor pieces because I went on a mad ebay buying spree of steck about 15, 20 years ago.  I was pleasantly surprised to find them among my many boxes of stuff.  As a result, I can help you with those floor pieces, drbatesy, I'll send you a PM.  :wave:

Thankyou for the photos Anne! I've seen some of these on ebay in France already so they're clearly 'around'.  ;D

Thank you for clearing that :)

I'm really glad that drbatesy asked the question because that prompted Tim to suggest this nifty solution that I was not aware of previously.  :)

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.
