This is a dead end... with an exit to your left - "hard turn to port". I (jambay/angamalta) am going to replace with BoxBlocks module; Wiki and Task replacement to follow. Anyone else that cares to work on this script is welcome but I won't be supporting any further work on this thread.

Back online, will still take me a week or so to get organized; just a heads-up notice. Reviewing source files and latest updates for Blender - nice to see official release for 2.76 though there are still some quirks with wiki and other resources. Hope to post update by end of week (pre-Halloween).

"Turn into the skid" - I'm going to blame the weather for my mood lately (it's been hot here). Meta-Androcto and TynkaTopi talked me down off the ledge, but I'm seriously side-tracked looking at JARCH_Vis for replacement code to fix opening errors in current script. Going to take a few days just to get familiar enough with "new stuff" to decide if it's the right thing to do for continuing development. Thanks all for your patience.

yes, specific, as in "Castle" design, meant for "ease-of-use" to create a complex mesh object. Understood it is rudimentary at present and may have limited application/use but a decent implementation (code wise).

Building Basics is about to be closed. A few more mods for block wall then going to start another project "Castle". Will incorporate many of the scripts from this collection but with major changes to use and operation not consistent with current design. Maintenance, as needed will be provided but this is at the "limit" for functionality without a total replacement.
