I've opened our virtual morning lounge a good number of times. This morning I showed up a little late, but I still conjure up the look of the lounge as I imagine it. Not overly elaborate, but functional and comfortable. So this morning I doodled a little bit on what the lounge may look like. So here is starting point. My crude sketch......



Like I said, crude. The siding would be 6" lapboard. As it turns out, I'm fresh out of lapboard, and have been for probably the last 20 years. So, I went to the computer and drew up the profile for 6" lapboard. The profile at this point is just a 2 dimensional drawing on the screen.

Well that's rather boring, so I 'extruded' the profile out about 100mm and drew in some windows. If you've followed any of my previous 3D builds, you remember 'Everything starts out on a flat piece of glass'. (Unless you are Walt) So the next drawing looked like this, although I 'cut' the windows from the backside, because the building plane is in fact 'on the glass'.



So, here is the front side wall made with the 6" lapboard.

Here is a side wall and the open doorway.



C'mon in, the other wall and back wall are printing.


More to follow.

I assume you're going to detail the interior with a bunch of grouchy guys drinking coffee and complaining about the weather.

I like where this is going, Jim!

Needs a couple of large chimneys... one for the stove and one for the fireplace so the Grouches can haul up to the fire, tankards in hand, and solve the world's problems.

Thanks Philip, The upstairs is for the second shifter's to catch a nap, or after those wild parties to sleep it off. .

The back wall and the 'other side' of the lounge door is done. {br]

In that case, you might need a tank car connection for the draft stuff arriving in those refrigerated tank cars....

Jim,

I think you’re going to need some really comfortable chairs and sofas, and a table, the scruffier the better.

And a couple of ottomans for the feet to live on, and some side tables for the drinks and the chow.

Mike,

I'm looking for the 'right' furnishing to make it suitable for the 'lounge'. The Coffee ur..silver bullet, the serving line, the scullery, a n'ar do well cook, a caboose stove, etc, etc. I'm waiting on some glue to dry on the roof trusses, and watching Jeopardy. Need to start laying out the windows too.

With all that coffee, I want a seat near the bathroom.

The 4 sides are tied together and the truss joists are put in place to keep the side walls straight. The walls are 1.2mm thick including the lapboard exterior side. So they can be a little flimsy. The joists add much to the rigidity.





I'll use 4 trusses to support the roofing, and make the top removable to view the interior.





The trusses will 'sort of' interlock with joists, sides, etc., and of course the steel roofing.





While I was waiting for the glue to dry, I drew up the roof sheet metal pattern, and printed some what I'll need.
