Depending on the design of a Rust base, adding wide gap peekdowns may not seem possible. Our guide goes step-by-step on connecting wide gap peeks to a multi-TC shell or to one central tool cupboard.

This guide continues from our how to add wide gap peeks tutorial.

By crossing horizontal and vertical wall frames, wide gap peekdowns can be easily added to bases that use multiple tool cupboards.

Connect Wide Gap Peeks with Multi TC Base
1. Foundation layout

Extending outwards from the middle of your wide gap peek foundations, place a half-moon of triangles and two square foundations. The triangles should be removed, and the square foundations can be upgraded.

Have the first two layers of wide gap wall frames placed and upgraded for your peekdowns. This is important as you may not be able to build them once the floor flames are put.

2. Using floor frames to connect

Place a wall frame followed by a half wall to have the perfect height. Afterward, place a floor frame from the top of the half-wall towards the base.

3. Completing the floor frames

Three consecutive floor frames will connect from the square foundation to your base wall. The wide gap peekdown wall frames cross through the connecting frames.

Stability may not allow you to place the second floor frame, so put a temporarily square foundation, wall frame, and half-wall as seen in the first example in the slider below. Stability will be fine once the three ceiling foundations connect to the base.

4. Connecting to a tool cupboard

Rebuild the half-moon of triangle foundations from earlier, and upgrade the foundations as in the examples. In addition, two connecting wall frames need to be placed to connect and provide upkeep to your base fully.

No tool cupboard is needed if the base uses only one tool cupboard. However, if the base is multi-TC, a tool cupboard will need to be placed.
