Holt Watermill

Postby soccerkid6 » Fri Jul 03, 2020 6:43 pm

Somehow forgot to post this here before :oops:

It was my second entry for the CCC XVII, in the Harvest Building category.

Primarily inspired by this 3d model:
https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-models/exterior/historic/medieval-watermill-b8fbd709-ee5d-4a87-91a6-7012e7f6a12d
The mill has a full interior. I haven’t done a cheese roof like this before, and it’s a technique I’ll likely use a bit more in the future. Besides that I’m especially pleased with the staircase design inside. Credit for the bag design in the rowboat goes to Marcel.

The watermill in Holt is always a busy place, but especially so during harvest season.

Hey Isaac,

This was a really great entry. So many nice details. I love the use of those macaroni tiles, particularly in the daub-and-wattle part, the shaping of the dirt and grass around the exterior, that window on the upper floor where you put two arched frames under an arch, and all the interior details. My favorite, though, is that staircase. Do you have any good pics that show how you constructed that?

Thanks Bruce!
There a few breakdown shots of the staircase in this build log post:

And I plan to make a proper tutorial on the design at some point.

Great job on the MOC - it is both beautiful to look at inside and out and is playable. I enjoyed looking through your progress pictures on your blog, thank you for sharing those.
