Nice work on the roof Mark. The masking tape, will give it some nice texture too.

Hi guys.

Thanks Michael, Frank, Rob and Bruce.

Michael - I haven't laid rolled roofing, but I've built plenty of flat roofs and watched the masters at work.


Well, I've managed to get a bit more done.

Photos 1 and 2 - show the stairway finished. I put a couple of supports bolted to the wall. I also had to cut a piece out of the parapet wall for access to the roof. This was a tricky little sub assembly to get right.




Photos 3, 4 and 5 - show the roof completed except for a few touch ups. I have put capping on the walls, added some roof top detail and some walkways for maintenance. I have also made a new roof for the extended rooftop addition.






More soon, cheers, Mark.

I really like the congestion and cluttered look of the "big city".

Hi guys.

Thanks very much, Frank.

Next on my list were the walls for the suspended deck area. I cut 4x4 posts to length on my chopper and then cut the bottom half down to 4x2's. These were glued to the front of two green wall sections. I added a bearer to the back of the front wall and a joist to the back of the side wall. I cut out 4x4 sections from a piece of 6x2 stripwood to fit around the posts and glued these pieces to the top of the walls. I then added pieces of 4x2 as rails, using a piece of 4x2 as a spacer.

The deck was made up from 10x2's. I glued a bearer to the front of the main wall section and a joist to the right side wall to get things at the right height. I then fitted the deck, trimming around wall protrusions such as the corner trim. I left off the back decking so I could see what I was doing when gluing into position. I glued this main deck into position, but left it floating at the front. I then glued on the left side wall, but didn't attach this to the front post. Finally I glued on the front wall and glued this and the side wall to the two posts at the front. It seems the further on I get with this project the fiddlier it gets!




Next up is to finish the decking, add a support post under the central bearer at the left end, and make a roof. I'm hoping to get a bit more done this afternoon.

More soon, cheers, Mark.

Hi guys.

A bit more progress. A couple more flights of stairs, some new roofs and some new fiddly railings. Harry and Graham, two of the canneries workers, are sitting down admiring the view over the water during their smoko break.







More soon, cheers, Mark.

Fabulous work, Mark, but I hope Harry and Graham are Reeeeeeeaalllyyyy Careful with those weeds, as the Fire Marshal will not be at all pleased if he has to stop by to sift through the ashes of that magnificent enterprise!

All the decking, steps, railings and other details really look good and add a lot of character to the building.

Excellent work, Mark. I find your increasingly complex cannery very intriguing.
