Thinking of trying my hand at making freestanding rooms to do building interiors and I’m wondering what I should use for the floors. Will a foamcore floor warp?08/10/2018 at 07:58 #10100708/10/2018 at 17:53 #101047Hafen von SchlockenbergParticipant
No warping on the Mexican/Southwest buildings I made years ago, but the floor edges were attached to the exterior walls with a hot glue gun.
Are you planning to leave the edges free? I can see how it might warp, but the foamcore I used was pretty rigid.08/10/2018 at 18:30 #101054trenchfootParticipant
Hi Noel, if you are in the UK near a Range store, have a look at my post, it could be what you are looking for09/10/2018 at 19:41 #101152
I was thinking of having the four walls surround the outside of the floor edges. I am completely new to working with foamcore/board.
I will look at my local shop to see if he sells thick plasticard.
Trenchfoot, which post are you referring to? I am in the US but if it is worth exploring I would order from the UK.10/10/2018 at 10:59 #101186John TreadawayParticipant
Expanded PVC is my weapon of choice

I would see if you can find a professional cutter. I found cutting foamcore by hand almost impossible. It’s good because you can use elmers to attach anything to it, wallpaper, thin card etc. All my buildings are made from foamcore. For interiors I usually go wall-less. It allows you to move the characters around freely and is a lot less work.10/10/2018 at 19:31 #10122426/10/2018 at 04:36 #102453
Thanks. I can’t find the pvc board at my local crafts stores. Home improvement places have them but they are 1/2 inch thick. Got any suggestions where an American can look?
Also, how do you handle masking where wall corners meet? Foam core can be cut with the paper still intact to hide this.06/11/2018 at 15:17 #103353OldBen1Participant
I was thinking about this project this weekend. I did something similar with paper mache boxes. It worked out really well. I used it more as a diorama but you might try the same thing.
This was for Cthulhu, but I also made some for a dungeon game as well:06/11/2018 at 15:29 #10335806/11/2018 at 16:51 #103364Private SnafuParticipant
That’s a really nicely designed and executed project. Instead of having tons of tiles and bits it seems like you have more manageable set pieces that still offer the ability to customize with modular internal parts. Well done!
