I agree .....................:Hmm: will i be going to a round 4, 5 and 6 ???:moose:

Keep in mind, its not as Large as you think it is, AND ive some Paper items and some lumber stacks yet to use.

Between the workbench and the tool platforms Ive No wall space LEFT to put anything against...........Those large items fills up floor space quickly :)

As far as shelves go, they'll fill up quick enough.......Ive got to have space for my Wheaties Box collection :glad:

So, I got word that my Lumber order HAS shipped and I hope to see it soon (today would be nice LOL )

Ive started work on my roofs...................Ive always wanted to try my hand at an old beat up cedar shingle roof ............Here is the result.............I believe I'll add a bit of mossy rowth along the edges of the bottom 2 courses and a bit of Metal (old car parts etc) with a bit of rust coloring washing down the roof.

A couple old tires and a bit of misc debris should finish it off.



The roofs just leaning against the walls and sitting on a couple of barrels so its a bit steeper pitch at the moment than it will be in the end ;).....Framework yet to come....Speaking of Barrels, I did recieve my barrels.......These are a 1/35 scale verlinden resin product. They are actually about the exact size of a 1/48 55 gal drum (milepost) so they must represent a european Barrel (or 42 gallons I think it is....When we hear the price of a Barrel of Oil, its not a 55 gal barrel, its like 42!!)

Heres a few that have been painted up and labeled

Woo hoo lookin good TG!

That tar paper looks like it has been there awhile...did you consider one of those diagonal patches for it such the Whitby Thonger used for his Sonora store build?

I like the job you did detailing the barrels too, I take it thats what the resizing of signs question was about.:cool:

Hopefully they won't break your lumber into toothpicks during shipping. :boohoo

Actually, Yes i did consider it and am still thinking i might do a Patch, BUT..........I think if I do anything it will be an Old tin sign Patch along with a coupla coffee cans flattened tacked and tarred ;)

That will look realistic, TG. Hows about taking a couple chunks of wood with a dab of tar to make a patch on the roof  where a branch fell into it, or the back wall where someone in a hurry accidentlly put the tow  truck thru the wall.  :Hmm: Just something from the top of my head.

Good to see you are still alive and kicking with all your might. :thumb:

Nice rock work on the fireplace. 

You cant call it camping if you have a toilet in your room.

Welcome back TG!!!  :wave:
