With the basic structure in place, the foundation can be dressed in many ways using styrene or paper sheets. These sheets can be found embossed or printed to represent a multitude of materials like brick, wood, block and stone.
Start with the floor of the building. If you will be detailing the interior, you will want a proper floor. Scribed styrene sheet was used for the floor on this building to represent broad wood planks. Notice the change in plank direction. This will be at the front of the building and will look better under the recessed doors. The floor is finished with a quick coat of spray paint. Attach the floor to the wood frame with wood glue or contact cement.
In the back of the building, a small hole is drilled in the floor for wiring. This will be conceiled behind interior walls and provides a path for the interior lighting. More elaborate lighting arangements will be covered in the next step.
The walls can be laminated in much the same way. Cut styrene or paper sheets to the size of the wood walls. Allow for overlap at the corners. Attach with wood glue or contact cement.
Finish the walls as you would any other part with paint and weathering. Paper sheets are often already colored but can still benefit from a coat of flat finish and a little weathering to dull the shine and blend the foundation with the rest of the structure.
