Looks like that wall has been around for awhile.
Nice work!

thanks carl, rich and greg. the construction manual doesn't call for any paint, but i felt i need color and i wanted it to have a well used look about it.
i've got some hunterline stain coming and i'll be using that on the warehouse walls.

Outstanding old weathered wall look for a Railroad Camp structure. Great job! That will be one fine looking building when completed.

i got the rear wall windows cut out and the excess trimmed off. i see cutting out the windows cost me a couple of boards. theyll probably be hidden by the window trim, but i'll replace them anyway. i'll also drybrush some color on the upper boards where they would be protected by the eave.
on to the front wall....

my wife and i were out and about yesterday and we stopped at a local "antique" place to sniff around. i found a perfect new tool for $10, so i grabbed it. here's my new tool.




i got the front wall sided today, but not trimmed:




and here's my new tool weighing down the front wall for the night:

Pretty weighty subject for a Monday morning. You should be able to iron out all problems with that.

the iron is a 9 pounder. perfect for weighting walls.

thanks greg. the dark lines that look like gaps between the side window trim and the bottom ledge must be shadows because they don't exist in real life.
just sayin'....
