The Tavern - part 2
Here's my solution for the problem with the 2nd floor that is hiding everything: Just pull the 1st floor wall more to the front. Very easy. I bought another 4 pieces of wood. The one is a bit longer than necessary to give the constuction more strength.
Then I had another idea - Fortunately before I glued everything together! I wanted all the interior movable, so I needed a connection system. I first thought about some kind of plug connection or to try out small pieces magnetic paper. But why not using real magnets?? I'll cover everything with parquet flooring so I can drill cut and glue whatever I want under the floor.
I organized some 5mm quadratic magnets, these will be in the wall. For the 2nd floor wall I'll use 1cm round (but only 3mm thick) magnets.
Now to the work:
Here you can see how it looked like after I cut the holes for the magnets.
Here you see the holes in the 2nd floor wall. I had to cut them with a knife which was no fun at all.
To cover the floor and the walls I used 2 different kinds of coffee stirrers (left: 140 × 6,5 × 1mm, right: 140 × 5 × 1,3mm).
The smaller ones are more in scale. But which room is 20 metres long? So I used the larger stirrers for the floor, this way the room looks a little bit smaller. The smaller stirrers were used for the wall. This way it looks more interesting and there'll be a lot of other stuff hanging at the walls anyway.
This is how it looked when everything was assembled and I started with the boarding.
And that's the finished tavern!
...a lot of important parts like the handrails, doors, stairs, lamps, tables, etc. were still missing at this point.
