Very good Chuck, I'd like to use it too. Seems there's a signage challenge going on that could use a boat ad. ;)

Indeed there is Chester!

Here is a tumbledown shack with an interesting chimney. I have seen this partial design more than once. I would love to see someone try it!

Cool sign Chuck.
I have a metal detail boat that is cast in 2 sections(left and right sides) that would work perfectly and I also have a structure that this would fit on quite nicely.
Add a few of the details shown in the picture and I should be all set.

This is one of the best you've ever posted, Chuck. I saved it under the name "Bad state of disrepair". It's the least I could do...

Chuck, thanks for the links. That half a chimney is different. Never seen anything like it.

As you think, so will you be.

The four-masted schooners Hesper and Luther Little were abandoned in Wiscasset Maine in 1932. There they remained, rotting, becoming tourist attractions, until their hulks had deteriorated so badly that in 1998 they were demolished.

If you want to read more about these two here's the web page where there's plenty of photos.

I've always thought something similar could make for an interesting scene.

I was passing through Heber City, Utah yesterday when this house just kind of called out to me. What do you guys think??

Great photos so far!

Now I got one for you guys.

I was driving back from Moose Jaw one day. About half way between MJ and Regina is a very small old town called Belle Plain. Must be all of 60 people living there. Evey time I have drove past this town one building always stood out and made me curious. So, being by myself, I turned off the highway and went to take a look.

It must be the largest building in Belle Plain. A private residence that someone was taking pains to save. Here is what you see from the Highway.



Upon driving through a town where some places were neat and tidy and kept up and others were mere shadows of their former self. This house was fenced off and surrounded with all manner of farming paraphernalia. But I did manage to snap enough pix to build a model.

First look at the Barn house.



Starting from the left side of the house. Those buildings on each side of this pic are grain storage sheds.



Here is the front of the house. That white frame thing is a trailer for hauling bails of hay.



This is the right side of the house. Looks like there was a porch at one times.



This is the best pic I could get from the back of the house.



I have since learned this roof is called a Dutch roof.(I think) Perhaps I posted this before, but I'm not sure. Anyway, there she be.

Hello Christopher,thanks for posting the photo's of that farm house that's shaped like a barn and from your photo it appears that their barn is shaped like a house. By the way I think that style of roof is referred to as a "Gambrel" roof.And dutch was a style of architecture.Always love to see interesting buildings.Thanks again Greg Shinnie

Actually, Greg, there is no barn on the property, as such. I'm not sure if there ever was one or not. those buildings you see are in fact the way farmers use to store grain before silos were commercially cheap enough. The grain sheds, or granary, as they call them locally, have iron rods that go through the walls and 4" x 4" beams on the outside with nuts and bolts, that hold the walls from spreading out due to them being filled to the roof with grain. Actually, the way they store grain in sort of make-shift ways is rather interesting.

John, do you know if this is an old house or a great job at a recreation? Or maybe it was restored? It looks like there is still some work needing to be done on the deck, can you read what those letters say back there cause I can't make it out in the pics? Thanks Pat

Very interesting structure Christopher. When you model this one it will be a very interesting thread.

Pat: It's definitely an old house that has been relatively well maintained. I think someone has started some restoration, but most of what is there appears to be original. As far as the "letters" go I don't know either. I was in a hurry when I took the photos and it really did not register on me that these might be letters. It looked more like where a porch roof had been removed. The next time I am in Herber City I'll take a look again.

Guys, we have had some interesting houses posted here lately.

Karl, when we were kids, we used to stay in an ocean front house in Sea Girt, NJ that was all cedar shake, and had a first-floor porch that your house brings to mind. It did not have that neat second-story porch, however.

John, that is a classic style house, and could easily fit right in here on the east coast. Many old towns in NJ and Penn had brick houses of that style.

Christopher, you might have found a 'one of a kind' house. Pretty neat!
