Dilapidated barn

Following conversations about more delicate and realistic models, I decided to have a practice with a small building to build skills which can be applied to bigger and better projects. With this project, I enjoyed thinking about adding context and passage of time to a building which had been abandoned to its fate. In addition to the building starting to disintegrate, it was important to show some debris on the ground and to show it being reclaimed by nature.
As you can see, this isn't the sort of robust wargames building that we are used to seeing but it is definitely the direction in which I intend to travel from now on.
Here, I shall show how it was constructed in a few simple steps.
