Then I cut out decking and tried to get it even,
so I had a bit of a lip to glue walkway to front edge.

You can see I decided to ad signs to walls as I was going along,
seemed easier than after I assembled the building.

As you can see I got a bit carried away with AI wash,
but figured it looked like black mold creeping up the wall papered wall.
Get that a lot in this part of the world.   

Got two walls put together here and beginning to stain walls with ink/alcohol,
using Dr Martens sepia and brown for exterior and black wash on inside walls.

Here I began putting together bathroom walls and door,
plus with last picture you can see I got garage doors built.

So here's more of the garage room put together.

As you can see I added windows and glazed them as recommended in kit instructions
(and did paint window frames before I did that).

Not really going for a too run down look overall,
since I think this is a successful on going establishment...  

I probably should have painted all the flat wood, but like the stain effect...
Warping will occur with this I know.

So here I have added walls for the shop area and office,
plus assembled walkway across the front of the building.

Haven't glued in bathroom walls (more to add in there).

They lay out post positions on the walk for cover,
and then you add joists after its glued in.

I really like the counter between the office and shop... plus I got carried away with signs,
and realized they get covered up with the roof, that is heavy cardboard,
which keeps it stable for removal, so you can see all the neat interior details.

So I decided to create a truss system for the shop area... a bit more realistic I think.

It's a rather odd shape because of the way they set the kit up.
If the garage was used individually it would make sense.
 
But it does create a rather terrible roof for rain (if this was real).
Oh well... didn't think about that until putting the other building up against it.
Bah!
 
I think it does create an interesting roof appearance, with the whole thing put together.

Another shot from above before shingling and tar-papering.
