Your latest work—the wood shingles, stained glass and chimney—look marvelous.
Bill Gill Posted - 03/07/2021 : 7:26:40 PM
That's looking terrellific!
The pastor will have to pass the plate as econd time to get you the asphalt shingles to finish it up.
Terrell Posted - 03/07/2021 : 5:20:51 PM
Thanks, Rob, Carl and Bob!!

The shingles are real wood. From a piece of veneer off a piece of plywood I found in the yard, naturally weathered. Though I did go over it with an I/A wash. It was rather fragile so I coated the backside with a thin layer of Mod Podge to hold everything together.

The chimney is paper bricks. The foundation will look more like that once I add mortar and weathering.

The windows are just images I found on the web, sized to fit. I coated them with a couple of coats of hi-gloss Mod Podge to give them a glassy look. Though I don't think it shows in the photos. There is actually 6 different images. And since from the outside you would be seeing the backside, the images are reversed. There's some print on them that would be a clue, if you could see it. I can't even with a magnifying glass.

Thanks for asking!!

Fred, WOW!! That looks terrific. There are many old churches around here and you have hit the
spot, it looks just right. What did you use for the windows?

Carl B Posted - 03/07/2021 : 5:00:54 PM
Neat work Fred. Is the chimney more paper bricks?
robert goslin Posted - 03/07/2021 : 4:38:46 PM
Nice work Fred. I really like the wood shingles. Are they actual wood ?
And the brick foundation look good too.

So how did you do the stained glass windows ?
They look perfect.
Terrell Posted - 03/07/2021 : 3:16:10 PM
Thanks, Rich and Jerry!!

I'm making fairly good progress on this thing. Where I'm slacking is in updating. Sorry.

I did the steeple roof with wood shingles. The plan now is to do the main roof in asphalt shingles, thinking the steeple roof is original but the main roof was re-done at some point. Also the chimney is done. Nearly didn't think about that.

All windows and doors are done. And the front steps and foundation are in progress.

"Get me to the church on time"

Another beauty in the making Fred.

Just checking you out again, Fred. Looks like you will have another winner !

Terrell Posted - 02/26/2021 : 3:53:26 PM
Thanks, Rob. Definitely no slate.

Ted, Mike, Bob and Bruce, thank you much!!

It's 20x30, Carl. Probably deceptive photography.

Thanks, Dave!!

Very nice looking country church...well done!
Carl B Posted - 02/26/2021 : 09:14:50 AM
a sheet of blue foamcore I bought at Walmart

Hmmm. My local Walmart only carries 30" x 20" pieces.
Yours seems larger than that.
Dutchman Posted - 02/26/2021 : 08:39:57 AM
The church is looking like many we pass in our travels here in Michigan. Nice work, Fred.
sgtbob Posted - 02/26/2021 : 05:50:43 AM
As usual, you have nailed it. It looks just like it should.
Great job.

Michael Hohn Posted - 02/25/2021 : 10:51:10 PM
Looks like the real thing. It has a pleasant country style. You did a great job on the steeple.
