Another map symbol - a classic German timber-framed farmhouse

The drawing was becoming insanely detailed so I decided to simplify, having reminded myself that these are map symbols, not architects' drawings! :-) I do love timber-framed buildings, so I may finish the madly detailed version as another piece of clip art. At this rate I should finish a few dozen symbols by the year 2012, so that's another reason to simplify the process. Only 4 or 5 more farmhouses to go, and I'm also working on 2 bridges. These are being done while having meals so I can justify the time, although not perhaps the occasional indigestion.

Next I think I'll take a break from maps for a while and finish at least one of the cavalryman templates on which I've been working, on and off, for months - probably a Luckner Hussar first but we'll see.
