The Bakery was built between August 2009 and January 2010 and was made as a test of the building methods I had in mind for the larger Dancing Dragon Inn. It was made int two stages, the basement was stage one while the house was stage two. The basement of the building is a chipboard storage cube. Both inside and out the basment has a brick finish accomplished using a combination of brick stencils made by Bromley Craft Products in the UK and my own mix of "brick paste". In the main chamber of the basement, the bakers are hard at work producing bread and pies to be sold in the shop above. The lower chambers house a storage room that connects to the sewer. Smugglers take advantage of this connection to carry away gems smuggled into the city in the sacks of flour used by the bakers.
Above the basement is a house of three levels. The ground level houses the shop where the produce of the bakery is sold. The next floor is the living space for the bakery while the top floor houses the bedroom.
In the shop two assistants are ready to help the customers while in the back corner a bookkeeper is going over the accounts. Customers don't come into the shop, but are served through the open windows. Out the front of the shop an Ale seller has settled his cart hoping the bakery's customers are thirsty as well as hungry.
The living space on the next floor is small, with just enough room for a table and benches, a set of shelves a settle and a cosy fire.
The bedroom is even smaller, with only room for a single bed and a small washstand.
This is the first, and I think only house where every single piece of furniture as well as the house itself was entirely hand made. Even the bedspread was hand embroidered. Indeed there are a mere handful of accessories in the house that were shop bought.
