Mike

A good tip would be to select one building that you know is correctly scaled....and then use that as a reference for all other building builds by comparing heights/widths as you mark out new ones.

Not sounding all that good for you at the moment, Mike.

If you need to have good ventilation to make progress, it looks as if you're either going to have to wrap up warm....or put things on hold until the weather warms up a bit. We'll be up to the dizzy heights of 3 degrees C sometime tomorrow!!!!

It's allegedly British Summer Time so more wind and rain :o
This project is on hold until I decide on a suitable baseboard. Looked at a couple but need to check out other options. Carpentry is Not my strong point
