Me like.

In my opinion(worth little), I'd give the shingles some different color, else she'd all look like the same color.

Now that you and Bob are on the home stretch with your tenement builds, here's a companion piece for across the road :)

This one is in Connecticut

Terrell, I'm just getting caught up after being out of town for two weeks. You're doing beautiful work and it's fascinating to follow the roof construction.

Ted, No it's in Norwich. I'm not sure, but think it was housing for mill workers.

Thanks, Ray and kebmo !!

The dormer roofs are shingled.




In a different light and the dormers in place I believe there's enough contrast between the shingles and the rest of the building. Though they are still a little washed out in that light. While I'm thinking on that I'll start working on windows.

All I can say is "Oh, WOW!". It's absolutely amazing the level of craftsmanship you have found within yourself. I absolutely love it.

For some reason',the word EPIC comes to mind.
A word often used to describe a spectacular event or occasion. In this case, it describes Fred Terrell's, ~ Epic Build'.
