I wanted the corner stones painted in grey to make them more noticeable as they are properly 'dressed' stonework and so probably looted from a crumbling Roman building.
The thatch has been painted to look fairly new as this sort of building might have been given a little more attention than more ordinary dwellings.
I added some plasticard stone slabs outside the front and back doors. Somewhere for the Thegns and Ceorls to stamp off the mud and dung!?
I also added some 'mini-natur' grass and flower tufts to the base.
Next, I'll be working on some scratch-built hurdle enclosures, more fencing and a small Saxon turnip patch.
