The Gap

a not quite cartoon strip

theinfill Medieval, Tudor, Jacobean dolls house blog - Hogepotche Hall –Hodgepodge Hall – marrying great hall extension to the main block

Main block on the left and the yet to be tiled slope of part of the great hall removable section

Method

(click on the gallery very mini first image and it should open up to something that you can see)

And paper the moulding too

Finally I’ve thoroughly papered over the fixed moulding on the main building wall with the lead effect painted paper

Er, why?

Good question.This is the great hall extension block. It’s made up of three storeys. The lower one extends the length of the main great hall room and therefore doesn’t need a fourth wall.
The room above also overlaps part of the main great hall and its fourth wall is a sliding fretwork arrangement for looking down into the hall. (This room is the guild committee room and a clerk works here.)
Above that is an ‘L’-shaped gallery from which you can look down into the main well of the committee room.
Now this one needs a fourth wall.

The crux of the matter. This upper gallery’s fourth wall is the back of the main block i.e. the part below the newly fixed moulding.  Ta da!

and voila

The other part of the great hall (that covers the first two floors of the extension) is there below the wall, with much worked on moulding now affixed .

Do not ask me how many times I’ve lifted the extension block back and forth for all these fittings.  But I think it might actually be ‘getting there’.
