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:













Enjoy!


PS -- On Thursday I'm leaving for my annual Nevada/Mojave ghost town trip, so I'll be offline for a while.

... picture in your mind all the drunks leaving the bar and sliding on their asses down the sidewalk all the way to the billiards...

Jose.

Brilliant as always Ray and a great location. I can already hear the beer glasses rattling on the bar as the tram clatters overhead!

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.:2t:

I like that two-story building that you rehabed.  Could tell us how you went about making that rock wall?

Many thanks for that link.  The step-by-step instructions are really helpful.

I didn't notice it before but the job you did on the roofing is outstanding! :bg:


Keep it coming please.
