If DF were to make a set for wooden buildings in whatever medium, at a future date that didn't interfere with any other projects, what would be the minimum required pieces, and what would make it most versatile?

I'm picturing beams and planks, possibly with the planks aligned horizontally on the bottom third of the walls and vertically on the middle third, with a window (row of supports with a beam on top) all the way across the top third. I'd use the standard MBS floors. I hope this style will evoke a stable or barn, a storehouse, wooden long houses, or possibly even feudal era Japanese houses (see The Seven Samurai if you haven't seen it recently).

The basic pieces are as usual, corner, straight wall, and floor. Wooden columns and freestanding walls (full and 1/3 or 1/2 height) would do nicely for interior divisions. It needs a big square door, but could also use a half-height gate for enclosures. Wooden stairs finish out what I consider the absolute must-haves. Left at just these pieces, I think it would make a decent add-on or small set.

What else is absolutely necessary for the basics? What specialty pieces would help evoke a particular type of building?
