Howdy all
My layout needs a lumber yard which I have started building. I'm using styrene as per most of my builds. Progress photo's will follow shortly.
As part of the structure I also need an office. I have a scrtachbuild I did a couple of years ago of Stombloi meats,which was part of my FSM Skinners Row copy. I've decided it will suit as the office/ hardware supply. Sorry, no progress shots of it, Just these completed ones.
Regards Rob

It's all done with styrene sheet, GL windows, and DecoArt paste for the render. Still need to make up some signs and add detail parts, but these will be done when the lumber storage shed is finished.

Rob,

I think that the Stombloi building will serve nicely as an office/store for the lumber yard.

I'm looking forward to your progress photos.

Thanks for the replies.
I only found a couple of photo's on the forum for Lumberyards. A bit surprised as I thought it would be something many would have on their layouts. Please post any of your own photo's if you have them.
I also have Art Curren's book, where he's kitbashed an Atlas kit, so this is where I'm mainly getting ideas from. As the shed will house lumber, building, and roofing supplies it will be a fair size structure, to justify it's own siding.
I'm just making it up as I go along. No plans.

First I made the basic frame. Will be three levels high.




Normally I use 1mm thick styrene for my walls, however, as this structure is open, I needed the board detail visible on both sides, so have used 0.5mm V grooved siding and glued the two mirrored halves together, then attached to the frame. That's all for now.

Very Nicely done Rob, I can't believe that is 'N' Scale!

When I saw "Lumber Yard" my interest was peaked. I too like working in styrene, but have not been brave enough to try a complete scratch build.

Can't wait to see the finished product.

Hi All. Finally some colour.
Ron, regarding my scratchbuilds, styrene is what I always use. It's easy to cut and file, and takes paint well, and is fairly cheap, and Evergreen make plenty of different profiles, so it suits me.
Have got around to painting finally. I gave it a light spray with automotive grey primer. Then airbrushed on desert yellow as an uncoat. For the interior I lightly brushed on flat earth and the exterior a wash of cockpit green.

Liking the way this is coming together. The slight distressing of the walls .. boards here and there popping out .. sweet. Colors are great.

Yes, very good. I like the color combination and the distressing. Have never tried to distress styrene. Do you just slide your blade under slightly to get the raised look?

Another update. Rhett, for distressing, yes just slide the blade under the edge to lift slightly, just the same as building with wood.
I've managed to get all the frame work together.
At this point the framework is very flimsy.






Next the cross bracing was added which now holds it all steady. Have also built a loading platfrom with stone foundation made with Slaters dressed stone sheet.
