Hi, if you search the DLS for residential buildings, there are some Town Houses and Terrace houses that are splined, and will extend for as long as you require them. I can't remember their exact details, but if you run a search under United Kingdom, you should soon be able to find them.:)

Use short lengths of spline and use plenty of spline points and make sure you set the height for each spline point. While not perfect this should help.
