For gaming purposes I could easily get away with having a building so close to a helipad , but I also didn't want the building to be abutting onto the front wall, which it would have to been to avoid encroaching any further onto the helipad.
The photograph below shows my preferred positioning for the exit site, giving all around access and not encroaching on the helipad (I should have been an estate agent).
The rear and side for completeness:

This photograph shows the original roof exit that came with the Twiliglt Street set, but note how small it is compared to my own one above!
The positioning of it is of course pants as there would be no space for stairs up to it in that orientation and it'll be reversed for gameplay purposes, again with sufficient space to place a figure anywhere around it.
I just need to make another 15 of these and my roof-top exits for my tenements will be complete! These don't take that long to make though, they're a single folded piece of paper mounted onto foamboard walls, whilst the roof is just paper, reinforced with some thin card (cereal packet).
I did vary the colour of the doors a little to give a little more variation, but they are a bit boring.
I've also been experimenting with some more HVAC units (seems to be all the rage atm) to add to my roof-top furnishings and I'll post about those next time.
That's all for this week except to remind you that my other blog has also been updated and can be viewed HERE, showing for the first time painted figures! (one even human)
