We summarize recent work in which we attempt to make consistent models of LHC physics, from the Pyramid Scheme. The models share much with the NMSSM, in particular, enhanced tree level contributions to the Higgs mass and a preference for small tanβ. There are three different singlet fields, and a new strongly coupled gauge theory, so the constraints of perturbative unification are quite different. We outline our general approach to the model, which contains a Kähler potential for three of the low energy fields, which is hard to calculate. Detailed calculations, based on approximations to the Kähler potential, will be presented in a future publication.
