Windmill base walls

Post by un1corn »

Hi Everyone.
Having seen the post by maxagaz and the response by papyblaise referring to farmhouse walls, I wonder if it would be possible the build the attached structure with walled features.
The plans show the walls and buttresses as seperate parts but I lofted the walls then lofted a buttress the made an array of it, then pocketed the doors, windows and a balcony support recess then arrayed the recess, I have included the file along with a jpg.
Does anyone think it possible to do this as a walled feature all in one, or would it need to be done in seperate parts then assembled?
Comments appreciated.
Thanks

Thank you all for your suggestions.
Papyblaise, this is exactly what I have tried to achieve (not enough practise yet).
I had thought of constructing a sold wall block and removing the unwanted areas but not got there yet.
I will post the windmill when complete.
Thanks again everybody.
