Validity: 168:9 required that "walls, roof, [and] balcony" be finished
"in the next 3 rules".  This can be a little tricky, as it doesn't
explicitly say it only counts VALID rules; but this is typically the
way such rules are interpreted, traditionally.  (Also, this is the
interpretation necessary for 168:12 to have been VALID.)  So for this
to be VALID, the balcony must be completed, but it is not.

Style: An amusing assortment of food items, but building would be
better than requiring building, and the restriction is again limited
in scope.  +0.5
