I've always been a Yankee, and I've been called 'a real dandy' more than once. So you might say so.

I guess I should start off with "good morning Jim". Not to throw doubt on your building but, might that flat portion of the roof cause some problems with rain and snow load depending on what latitude the lounge is?

Nice design you got there Jim.

While everybody is thinking about the lounge furniture I'm thinking where's the "Lounge Layout" going to be located? What scale will it be in? Will it be a modular or will it be permanent? Will it be DC, DCC or R/C? An inquiring mind wants to know.

Frank,

You've got a good point there. On the plus side, it never rains or snows in the cave. On the negative side, the solar scam panels never get enough sun to produce any real power.

Thanks for stopping by!

Jim

Bernd,

The model is being built in HO scale. I'm using Fusion 360 as the CAD program. With a few keyboard taps, I could turn it into N, TT, O, or G scale rather easily. It'll be on a piece of foam until I decide whether to use it towards the Structures AP or not. More than likely, it'll end up on a friend's (forum member) DCC module. Thanks for the interest.

Jim

Now that's turned into quite a project from just a "Doodling after breakfast" moment. Nice work, CAD is noting I've ever done or attempted, but it seems you have it mastered. Hats off to you Jim!

I never thought of the Lounge as being green, but damn it looks good. Did you forget my 6 burner with griddle gas stove? Good doodling.
Grouchy old men, never heard of that.

Thanks Lou! But, I don't know about 'mastering it', because it still can kick my butt when I go off on some tangent. I did a little window work today. Custom sized windows for any occasion.

I just had some green plastic loaded in the printer, and went with it. It will be painted in suitable grunchy colors.

About the stove...Eddie didn't like it. A little too complicated. So you may have to have a 'one on one' with him.

Jim,
you're starting to master the CAD automation. Nice work!

Jim,

I'm impressed with those prints. That last close up shows what looks like "fuzzies" on the part. How will that be taken care of?

Sorry, green as being energy efficient.

I spoke with Eddie this morning. He quit smoking so he couldn’t remember how to make eggs without cigarette ash. He is not interested in learning a new stove, prefers the big griddle we already have. I asked how does he make bread without a good stove, he said bakery!

Your build looks great.

I like the way you're turning out building parts. Nothing like using modern technology.
