These first two pics are my original mock ups of the build. At this point I have to say thanks to the wife. She broke her rule of no interest in the hobby and gave me advice on the build. This differs from the build because its one tile smaller either way.
I tried a 5 x 6 tile hall, but wasn't happy with the the size. 6 x 7 just seemed better to us both. There are two WFB skeletons for scale.
The next two pictures show the proposed next phase of the build. A gallery which overlooks the great hall. All levels will be seperate for convenient storage. Also will allow for roleplaying if the mood takes me.
