Here is one of my latest buiding projects. My primary consideration is creating as many possible tactical situations in a location that are "playable". My definition of playable; you can position figure easily, verify line of sight and take the rules into consideration. Most of my second floors are a minimum 2" in height so require at least one initiative test to climb.

The initial Idea, plan and base...

Add the foundation. I have at least three types I use. A "dirt" level, a simple foundation of a piece of foam board (pictured above), or an elevated foundation built from 1/2" foam.

The walls are drawn and cut out...

The other side...

Then the floor is added and the base coat is applied... At this point I consider it useable untill the finishing touches can be made. This was the work of a single day, with each picture representing a 15 to 30 minuet block of time as I went about other activities. So easy a caveman can do it!!!

Very nice!
Is anything supporting the floors on the 2nd floor?

Yes you are correct. Those are the supports. The floor on the right has not yet been added. Sometimes I will use the foam board first then place the thin cardboard floor on top. It just depends on what I have availible and how cold the garage is when I am working. Buildings in a day....or 2 Icon_wink
