After the Porter, I spent some time compiling "junk".

Added a few scrub pines.

And this creek,as a separate piece. It was just intended to mask the edge of the deadline. Once I started putting everything together later on the creek was scrapped.

In the next phase of phase 5, I had this small toilet in the machine shop.

I didn't like it there, it blocked the view and could only be seen when the outside wall was removed. So I removed it from the shop and used the fixtures in the section house. So I built this larger company toilet, complete with showers.

That last photo is proof that even in an old machine shop, the job is NOT done until the PAPER WORK is done! Russ

Thanks to all !! Russ !

The wood color comes from a soaking in a steel wool/ vinegar solution. I pretty much start with this on all my woods then add an I/A wash where needed.

The next step was adding this oil tank and storage building.

They have no interior detail because I didn't take the time to figure out what the building stored. And I didn't want to fill the tank with oil.
The storage building will later move to the left side.

Next this standpipe was added.

The reason for the move was adding this sand house.

And that concludes Phase 5. The deadline.

Terrell... Many thanks for posting your build.
I am especially pleased with how you put together smithy.
Suggestion... There needs to be fly tape and a fly swatted in your outhouse.
Donald, just back from black fly season.

Lots of small, well-done details. I can almost smell that layer of dirty oil on the barrel and the oil-saturated soil. No job seems to be done 100% by your fictional crew. Spilled material, empty or almost-empty bags, stray cinder block, hose left spilling oil on the ground, mold growing in the shower . . . The list goes on and on.
