And while I was at it, I decided to order a few parts,
and to make the order worth the shipping costs,
I ordered some doors I need for the dry goods store.

In order to double check their measurements,
I had to open the roof on the dry goods store.

Since I was in there anyway,
I went ahead and built/installed the second Berkshire Valley shelf unit,
that I bought over a year ago.

Didn't like the photo of the land office side.





And here is the meat market side (window openings not yet trued up).

WOW, Tom, I love the interiors!

That's one thing I haven't done, other than to make an interior in one small flag stop depot.

You're motivating me to get moving with the larger structures!

Some impressive workmanship to be sure!
Like Lee, I probably need to "interior-ize" more structures...
goodness knows that I have more than enough stuff to fill all my buildings!

Tom -

I really like the shot through the door of the dry goods store. 
Lots of nice detail work. 
Nicely done.

- Tom

Yes, some dry goods and it will look like a store.
 
Stay away from the wet goods though,

they make everything soggy.

It has great potential.

Keep posting,

this slacker needs to see progress.

Lee, Woodie and Tom,

Thank you for the kind words.
I only hope that I can someday achieve results that are as good as yours.
I read all of your threads, and always end up disheartened at my own skill,
but inspired to try harder by yours.

I'm sure many of us look at our own work,
and see the parts not done or less than what we had hoped.
 
When I look at the photos of the dry goods store, I do see potential,
but mainly I see the not-yet-designed-or-built interior sashes for the side window,
the empty shelves, the counter that still need to be designed,
and the many puzzles with keeping the top floor removable.

Woodie recently posted a photo that had a window that was,
I think the correct term is, "cattywhompus", although I'm sure I spelled it incorrectly,
all I saw was a wonderful scene, with real continuity and interest.  

Thanks again,
it means much coming from model railroaders like yourselves.


Tom

Steven,

No, the wet goods will have to wait for a saloon,
but I don't think it will be anywhere near as nice as your Star Spangled Banner Saloon.

By the way, I believe your barber shop started as a Rich White kit.
How did you like working with it?

I have a Banta engine house kit,
but I have never worked with hydrocal, other than lots of rocks.

I thought I might try a Rich White kit before the engine house,
since it is a little easier to replace if I trash it.

Stay tuned,
I have a small update coming in a few minutes and more in the works.

You Sir are no slacker.
Fixing up a house and building a layout... not easy.

Well it is still way too hot in the garage, and likely will be for another month or so.

I also can't bring the old layout back in, until I finish rebuilding my server cabinet,
which will be a few weeks at best.

So the layout building stays on hold.

The meat market building is on hold waiting for a window from Tichy,
and I'm just not ready to tackle the dry goods for the shelves,
or the side window sash for the dry goods store just yet.

What to do?

I started on the dress shop.
It is another Stoney Creek Designs building (2018 Book Store).

I stained the sides and "wall papered" it.

 


And I built the basic box.
 




While I was dry fitting the box,
I needed to test fit some of the front windows.

One of them is broken and a little bent.
 




I don't work with resin much,
do you think I can fix this with CA or maybe epoxy?

Oh,

and I left the wood burning pen in the drawer.
