These model buildings have one main disadvantage, and that is that they are very light and are therefore easily moved accidentally. I recommend glueing a weight inside the base to help prevent this; I've found that a small slab of wood works well, though just about anything will do.
This is a half-timbered medieval to renaissance era European corner house suitable for 6mm to 10mm gaming. The photos are taken against a 1cm grid, which should give you an idea of the size.
You can get the PDF file here (2.79 MB). The layout provides four models which, once built, can be arranged around a central courtyard to create a complete block.
This is a 1/300 scale garage or engine house, designed for micro-scale wargaming. It's about an inch long.

I ran out of card for my printer, so the mock-up shown here is just made out of paper which is why the walls and roof are so woogly and crappy.
Seedy two to three storey town house. This is modelled on medieval European half-timbered houses, in which the upper storeys overhang the street quite substantially in an attempt to maximise interior living space in what were usually very cramped surroundings. I've weathered the plasterwork of the wattle-and-daub walls quite extensively; this would be a rather damp and unpleasant house to live in, I suspect.

This building is larger in scale than those below. The reason for this is because gaming figurines have been getting steadily larger over the years, the standard now being closer to 35mm than 25mm, so they tend to look too large next to my older models which were designed for use with 25mm figures.

These peasant dwellings, known as a "Grubenhaus" (German, "dugout dwelling") were little more than thatched pup-tents. The floor was dug down a couple of feet below ground level to allow for some head-room, hence the name. They were common peasant dwellings all over Europe right up until the early 20th century.
