WTF! I can't believe I don't have a shot of the front
of this building. I thought it was in a file somewere
in my computer but I have not been ablr to find it.
Here is a few more picture of a structure just befor
it was demolished.
looking at the pictures i figure each brick section between the pilaster posts is 8 feet wide........x 6 sections = 48 ft plus the 1 foot of brick pilasters.
Using the low shed rear wall and looking at the 2x4 sticking thru at about the 10 foot mark.....they look to be 24" on center making the rear building 32 foot wide.
Rear corregated wall too the peak could be 15-16 foot high
the center corregated section appears to be about around 20--22 foot high on the side and 6-7 foot higher to the peak
to figure out a length for the corregated side buildings....corregated panels are 27" wide, just count them....reduce that too 24 " centers for wall studs they would be attached too and allow for 1 1/2" each side overlap of the corregated.....that gives you the 24" wide to count. So just count panels to get a fairly accurate lenth.
I would make the brick building out of board and batton siding and find some 1 foot wide brick pilasters to slip in between to make the 8 foot sections. If all the brick sections were identical, it would be worth the time to make a hydrocal master section and carve bricks into it, then reproduce it 12 times.
Or one could drill holes into the hydrocal brick pattern walls, then very carefully carve window door openings.
Very cool structure and would make a great starting point for a scratch build. I shoot everyone of these old buildings that I come across. Great source for ideas and you never know when they will be torn down or just fall down. Around here the heavy snow falls really take there toll on old ones like this one. They are also a great guide for weathering.
Please post anymore that you might get photos of in the future...would love to see and save them for reference.
