Al, I wouldn't be surprised to see a similar looking scene on my planned layout some day.

As you think, so will you be.

Shorpy is so great. It seems I have some sort of affinity towards hotels as this old building strikes me as something to model.

This one looks like a full scale craftsman kit!

If you modeled these rust stripes, would anyone belive it was correct?

I came across this old abandoned farm house just South of Idaho Falls, ID, this past weekend. I thought if somebody needed a project with some interesting roof angles this would fit the bill.











I couldn't get a shot of one of the rear corners of the place due to overgrowth.

If you built it with the dish antenna I bet you'd get a ton of questions. LOL
Interesting house.

Ray: This house was occupied until about four years ago. When it was abandoned there was an old barn behind it that was really delapidated. Everytime I went to see my daughter I thought I should go get some photos of the barn. When I went over to take the photos this past weekend lo and behold the barn was gone . Stupid of me to delay. At least I did get the house though. Moral of the story; get the photos when you first see the structure because these old buildings are not going to last.

Nice house, John. You're right, we should never be optimistic about the survival of old beauties...
