Farmsteads

Along with the small fishing community of Boddington and the Farming community of Boddingham, there are small Farmsteads that supply to the Needs of Bodstonia, growing crops such as wheat, barley, vegetables, tending small herds of sheep or cattle and keeping orchards.

These have developed thier own style of architecture, a quick and easy one, mainly using planking and beams  supplied by Jeremiah Coleman´s saw mill.

They work together as an open community, sharing Tasks like ploughing, planting and harvest but have thier own individual interests which can be shared among the "Steaders" (more commonly spelt as "Stedders" )

A Farmstead which produces herbs, cabbages and Beans.
Another farmstead which produces goats milk and cheese.
The backyard. Looks like the woodpile is getting added to in preperation for the oncoming winter.
A Farmstead with a bread / Pie oven.
As most farmsteads are within hailing distance (or at least visible to one another) they tend to create shared facilities for common useage, such as Barns and other such storage facilities.
Here they also Keep larger pieces of Equipment such as carts, ploughs etc.

      The fences were difficult to create...I cut myself twice..one was deep and bled a lot.

  3. Great looking scratch buildings Paul. Added people and other interesting stuff too helps create a nice pleasant scene. I`m afraid cutting of ones fingers is quite common in Scratch Building. Hope yours healed up fine. Beano Boy

    1. Thanks Paul.
      It wasn´t a deep cut but it bled hugely. The Problem with the fences was I had to attach all the Planks and then thin them down when they had dried. ...which meant in one or two cases cutting towards myself...and one time I slipped!! :-D
