"After getting the dovecote constructed (although not yet painted) I decided the next building would be a bit more substantial, and that a farmhouse would be the obvious counterpart to the dovecote.

It's not quite a manor house, except maybe in some rather backwoods shire, but it's a substantial two storey building with a big chimney rambling up one end. The main structure is all 1/16th matt board, the stonework is pink styrofoam insulation, and the timbering is thin wooden coffee stir sticks, mostly split lengthwise into thinner pieces…"

On the link it is listed on the English Civil War/Thirty Years War, Historicals Terrain site which is definitely not French and Indian War which is one of the two boards you have it listed under.

And the matter here is… do you like/enjoy the tutorial?… (smile).

Armand, if you look to the left of this post the top board does say French and Indian War so from that it implies you have. So based on that I would say so.

Thanks Tango01 – well done yet again

Well… I can't see this piece looking too out of place on a French and Indian War table anyway. Especially in a broader Seven Years' War context.

Mark, so on the frontier in America you would see an English Civil War house?

Looks great!

I'd be inclined to use it in WWII scenarios, since I don't do the other periods.

Beyond the 1630s I can't see too many of these being built in NE especially since a lot of the English that settled NE came from areas in England where clapborded buildings were the norm.
