How durable have these buildings been for folks using them in their games? They look like great models, but I've never seen them in person.

Have two, with the floors included they are very durable.
They fit in well alongside my other stuff from Sarissa and 4Ground.

I got mine before they came with floors, but mounted them on 3mm plywood, and they are doing fine. I did add plastic card 'wood' floors to the smaller buildings. I also added some interior stalls and a hay loft to the barn.

They are quite sturdy even w/o floors.

Thanks. This evening, I was going to buy a couple small buildings to test them and take advantage of a small sale they're running, but when I got to the shipping (nearly $13 USD) on a $23 USD order, I decided to pass.

I have a few of their kits, none with floors, but they're very sturdy. I just glued them together with white glue and they've held up great.

I have half a dozen and they are pretty tough. Once glued together they are solid as I need them to be. I wouldn't want to stand on one but suspect if I did it would hold out for a bit longer than my homemade foamcore and balsa buildings.

When Arnica first came out with this style building, I did a stress test on trhe corners as I was considering folding them up after use. Well after 1oo test assemblies I saw nop loss of tightness or susceptibility to breakage
