Ray, those buildings looked great before the renovations, a nice air of general decay and lack of attention over decades. I can see why you re-worked them though, particularly the glazing which really shows up in the night photos allowing their excellent interiors to be clearly visible.

Recently I've been working on a new building for the town of Mineral Ridge. This will be a saloon called "The Grizzly Bar". That's a double pun -- not only the obvious "bar/bear", but also there is a piece of mining equipment called a "grizzly" consisting of a series of thick metal bars used to separate oversized rocks from the rest of the ore.
Anyway, this saloon has to fit an odd-shaped space underneath a mine tram bridge. There will be a small covered porch or patio area attached to the main building. I'm not going to post a step-by-step at this time because I plan to use this build in a magazine article. But for now I will post a few in-progress pics:
PS -- On Thursday I'm leaving for my annual Nevada/Mojave ghost town trip, so I'll be offline for a while.
Ray, glad to see you back in the line-up. Hope you enjoy your travels. Keep posting!
Jose, at least I won't be falling down drunk when I leave the bar... Perhaps the owner of the billiards establishment should change the name to the "Slide Inn"?
Good stuff as always.
