I already know that I will need more corners, if such pieces become available individually or in a 4 pack (hint, hint). If an area is to have a lot of small cottages or even row houses or rooms inside a building, more corners are a must.
A possible answer to this would be a 2"x4" piece, with a long wall along one 4" edge and a 2" wall bisecting the piece to create a T shape. That gives us a starting point for interior walls that meet exterior walls, as in the case of row houses or rooms or even partitions within a room (a fancy inn might have semi-private tables along one wall, or a warehouse might have sectioned storage areas, or a store might have separate areas for different wares).

Thoughts?

As it at first seems a good idea, at second i think its no good, cause:

1) you can build this by using a corner and a straight wall
2) the 2" wall that bisects the piece would be straight in the middle,
so no normal straight wall would neatly fit in

I see the MBS as good as it is right now. I don't think singles are needed
especially when a wicked editions for these come out.

But the point is that a set-up that has lots of rooms eats up corner pieces very quickly. Buying an entire new set just to get a few additional corners seems unnecessary, and leaves you with lots of "extra" pieces. A T-Wall lets you use one piece instead of two.

Don't take "bisecting" literally. I'm sure Stefan would offset the short wall so that it would match up with other pieces properly.

Nobody said anything about marketing this as a single. I think it would go nicely in a Wicked Additions set.

-----------------

This might also be a piece to consider for the other lines -- it's pretty universal.

However, if the wall is offset, you'd need two such pieces to build a room (assuming I understand your idea correctly.) If you oppose the pieces, the walls wouldn't match up.

Argh, you're right.

Okay, so this might not have been the greatest idea.

Still, if the bisecting wall WERE exactly centered, that would create a variance of about 1/8" between it and an adjoining wall piece. How bad is that? Is it worse than corners created by putting two straight walls together, or other odd match-ups?

Or, would either side (company or consumers) object to having two pieces, one slightly offset left, one slightly offset right?
