Cool! Glad I understood it correctly :-D

Ok cool. I suppose we need a convention then for the vertical thickness of 
floor tiles. Currently the vertical height of tiles is 32px (2/3 of 48px), so 
perhaps a quarter of that, i.e. 8px?

Then inner wall pieces would be 88px tall (3 * 32px - 8px) and outer wall 
pieces would remain 96px (3 * 32px).

Correct. I've designed my Redwyne inn gfx so that they sit on the seam between 
floor tiles.

Btw, my new PC just arrived. I'll unpack it now and try to get Linux & 
Adonthell setup on it so I can start making models. Yay!
