Very nice. Looks like it would be a lot of fun to play.
FYI: In the Middle Ages, kitchens were always separate buildings from the houses because of the chance they'd burn down.

Is there a kitchen in the house to the right with the bar? It isn't visible in the photo as far as I can see. This looks fantastic, I wish I had WA!

Thanks for the great feedback

Hi Emmejuice, the dwelling with the juice bar is more of an inn (with two single beds upstairs) - what doesn't show up clearly in the floor plan shot is two toilets

Looks good. But, instead of using just the one Barn Wall paneling, you should have used both the left and right versions. It's a little more labor-intensive, but it ends up looking more realistic in the end.
And where did the cows come from?

Human beings are a very irrational species. Some of them are even afraid of pickles.

What a fabulous lot I can see that you've put a lot of thought into building it.

The cows came with the free world Riverview.

Speaking of cows...
Have you also seen the free animals sets by Rebecah?

And the horses by Victor

I thought I would toss this out there on the off chance you might not have seen them. :-)
