A taste of the more ‘contemporary’

Standard

It’s time to move on from the late Medieval and early Tudor to a taste of late Elizabethan and early Jacobean.

Mock up of plan for wall with ceiling anaglypta paper balancing on top to help give the ‘feel’ (wrong side down seems to look better than tother way).

Having sadly realised the improbability of building a barrel ceilinged Long Gallery, I plumped for the top-heavy look.  The linenfold panels on the left are the framing edge of the fireplace area.

I’ve still not worked out how to make the standard three-piece pack paneling pieces look as though they really are continuous.  To-date it’s probable that I’ll stick another piece of wood across the top and bottom splats.

The wood stain is a mix of Jacobean and Georgian to add some warmth.  There’s going to be enough very dark furniture in the Long Gallery it’s hoped that this will help give a little contrast.

This section of outer wall is providing the seal/closing to the upper, upper room of the Great Hall extension. (See the top lean-to room in “Clockwise once around the block “ a couple of postings ago to help make more sense of that last sentence).  It’s planned to hold portraits etc and has a plaster and beam outer face.   The plan is that the remaining outer walls will hold windows of various sizes.
