Looks fantastic!

Are you building the roof assembly separate from the walls? Id imagine it would be easier to work on that way. The seam could be between the top of the wall and the horizontal overhang of the roof.

Thanks, Guys !!

Mike I'm doing this much of the roof. The rest will likely be done separately. And possibly removeable. This way I can do the corbels. Next I'll probably do the foundation before going back up on the roof.

What a beautiful building you have constructed there Fred'. I must admit though, I kinda of liked the upper center right window with the original window treatments. It was an exact replica of the real thing and was spot on'...But, you are the builder, not me. and as you know, opinions are like @#$%^holes and they all stink...

What I really like about this structure overall is the symmetry of the thing; the details are just icing on the cake. This sort of structure proves that you can have beautiful, functional housing. I can't wait to see it with that Mansard roof.

Really nice, especially considering how quickly you're getting it done.

Thanks, Ted, Galen and Ray !!




Now I have to figure out how to do all those "rectangles" that go between the corbels.

I don't blame you for putting the roof off. Roofing in the summer is pure he!!.

A thought on those rectangles: build a jig that is the size of the rectangle (allow some spaces to pop stuff out of the jig.) Put a very thin piece of styrene into the jig, then cut and assemble styrene strips, using the jig to keep them aligned. Pop the rectangle out of the jig, and build the next one.

Thanks, Frank, Carl and Dave. I decided to just build them in place, on site. That way I can make adjustments, not that my measurements are ever off but if the spaces between the corbels should vary.... then I'll be ready.




Only 18 more to go !!

Terrell, Looks fantastic!!

I made one section to go between corbels and cast a bunch. If it doesn't come out even I'll live with it.

I'm way behind you in construction but your build is an inspiration, you have done a great job.

Thanks, Bob and Chuck.

I saw your mold, that's definitely a good way to go. If I'd been set up for it I may have taken that route. But for now I'm done with corbels and rectangles.

Fred, that's going to be ready to rent before the paint is completely dry. Good work all around.
