Hi All:

Here's another photo. I fixed the crooked tire casting. I'm not sure I'm not sure how happy I am with the stucco.

For some reason can't file another photo

Hi All:

Not at all happy with this color. I'm changing it to Floquil Aged Concrete per the instructions.

Karl,
I'm looking forward to your Bailey's build. I always liked the looks of the building and your work is going to do justice to the build.

Karl, actually, I like the greenish stucco. It is unique and something different from
the usual concrete colors'.. for stucco'...

Karl,

Don't sweat the stucco! The paper siding/shingles look terrific! Did you cut those by hand, or pre-cut in a kit?

Iím looking forward to watching this develop. While the green stucco looks ok to me, it does remind me of what happens to stucco in a shady spot in a humid climate: mold. Itís worth the effort to get it the way you like.

Great job. I really like the shingle siding.

Mike

I agree with Ted. Stucco does get painted sometimes. It doesn't have to be concrete color.

Hey Karl your off to a good start.

My personal opinion I love the siding, doors & windows but I think the green takes away from the rest of the build.

That's just me. Please continue.

Karl, always great to see your work. I'm liking the coloring of the tires in the casting, can't wait to seeing the casting horizontal. I'm also really liking the rusted door hinges and door plates on the two doors. Good seam along where the wall meets the shingles.

I had to really study the stucco wall for a bit to figure what was 'off' to my eye as the color did not put me off. I actually kind of like the coloring and all of the subtle earth/yellow-green values you achieved in the stucco wall.

I finally settled on the the 'texture' issue. It took a while to realize that the stucco wall texture is greater than the depth/relief of the hinges on the large door. You have a heavy texture line at about a 45 degree angle line in the stucco texture below the shingled wall door leading the viewers eye away from the door and to the wall texture, thus making the texture stand out more. I don't know if knocking down the texture a bit would help, but just a property of the wall which I noticed. The angled texture line is also some of the most heavy/predominant texture in the entire stucco wall, so my mind focused on the texture rather than the coloring. Hope this helps.

Hi All:

WOW!!! Thanks for all the comments Here's a photo.
I decided to go with a completely corrugated roof. I painted it to match the rolled roofing. Looking for comments as to how it looks. Also change the stucco to aged concrete.

Was wondering how the corrugated roof looks before I glue it in place.

Karl
