Levelling Up

Life becomes a lot easier when you can get an asymmetric building like number 17 sitting level so once I'd got the porch area sorted out the next step was to add the basic foundations.

This is not as simple as just adding some extra styrene sheet to the bottom of the walls because you have to be careful that the whole house stays straight, level and continues to sit flat.

It's all too easy to end up with a building that leans or rocks on its foundations.

The job as become easier since I was given a new set square which is at least 10cm on its longest edge and so is very good for checking that the buildings are sitting perfectly perpendicular.

  1. Nothing more annoying than finishing a building and then finding it rocks or tilts! I've got a small set square for just this kind of work too. Picked it up from a lovely old guy at a boot fair. Do you do anything to the base where they sit so it's even too?
