Here is a picture from Curteys Miniatures.

It's a Saxon Farmstead.

What are the building or structures that the red arrows point too? The beehive looking thing and the raised building?


Thanks, Xin/Jeff

The small ones are beehives The raised building is for grain or other fodder crops. Keeping t off the ground keeps it from getting damp and animals out.

See attached link for painted examples

Whilst I agree with the beehives, I think the raised small building is for chickens, my own coop is similar without the thatching

Granary. The overhang keeps the rats out.
