More information

Background information:
Developed after the example of an Edam's building on Keizersgracht, originally built from 1650. Since then, the actual building has undergone various small and large renovations, although the current shape was created around 1800. The current main function is living and there has also been frequent living in the past. Nevertheless, the building at the front on the ground floor also has a shopping function. The extensive shop front with many small windows reveals this function. The Markenburg model has a tile floor, walls and ceiling in the retail space.

Architectural details:
The building is constructed from timber frame construction. A handy choice for Edam circumstances because a wooden frame with a wooden finish weighs less than stone walls. In this way, the size of the foundation can be saved in the marshy soil. Only the chimney was constructed from masonry for understandable reasons. The shop front is relatively modern and dates from the mid-1850s. What is visible both in reality and in model is the patchwork of planks that are mainly equipped with the facade.

Note: Precision and experience are required when assembling this model. This applies in particular to the 1: 160 scale.
