Its going to take me a while to get up to speed on TurboCAD Pro. For a start, that has about twice the menus of the non-trivial Deluxe version. I urgently needed a bridge between doodles and full-on CAD. Thinking laterally, as my 'Medieval-ish' 'caravanserai' is brick & ashlar, I went for Lego (TM)...

This is certainly a WIP as I'm still finalising the fourth wing, with its accommodation for VIPs, and a postern tucked into shadowed corner...

And, our 2-yr old HP A3 wide-format scanner-printer having annoyed me once too often (*), it is now in a trash-bag behind the wheelie bins. A replacement is coming from A*z*n. This has two paper trays, simplifying life...
