Thanks Roland coming from you that means a lot.

Carl thanks for your input.

I've thought about both those colors. Anyone else?

I would go for pink, which wouldn't clash with the flamingos!
Nice frame

Jerry,

I like Carlís idea of gray; I would combine a medium gray body with dark gray trim. Several railroads used those colors. Another railroad combined gray with a dark red or maroon trim. That looks very railroady.

I think using two colors shows off the architecture of the building.

I don't believe that for a second! I see them on lawns all over the place ....and they always seem to know whose birthday it is.

Jerry, I have to agree with Rich and Dave. Flamingos go with everything.

Jerry,

Really?? Pink is a superb color for a structure! I don't mean to be off topic here, but I must show you that pink is indeed a great color.
What made me think of pink was the Pink House, located in Allegany County, New York State, in the Village of Wellsville. This is really the color of the home, and has been painted that color since it was constructed. The following photo is of the real structure. Still standing today.



The following pastel rendering was done by my Mother. If you look to the right lower corner, she signed her name.

Look at that, a little bad weather to keep you from the beach and look at the progress.
You've got this framing thing mastered.

I guess that sill plate is the same thickness as the ties you're going to use.

Rich, your mother has some great artistic skills.


As you think, so will you be.

Looks good Jerry for being locked up inside the house!

Do you need another Nor'easter to keep moving..?

Jerry, I had no doubt that your 4 corners would eventually meet up, and turn into this sturdy looking framed structure.
Nice work!
