the loading dock framing has been epoxied to the warehouse. once the epoxy has cured, the 2 story building will be epoxied to it and the warehouse.
( i know it looks wierd. it's sitting on 1/4" glass.

Your decking looks appropriately well worn. Excellent.

the decking has been completed and the roof glued on. the fascia is next.



there are some irregularities where the deck boards meet the structure and they will be masked with some of the many details.

memorial day weekend generally means a ton of yard work. we got our flower gardens in, the lawn taken care of, the house painting finished, and i managed to shingle the office roof.




next up: rafter tails and epoxying the office 2nd floor to the stone walls.

Very realistic construction and color. What kind of material are the shingles?

I imagine your flower gardens look equally nice.

Looks good Kevin.

Are those shingles made by Brett?

mike and carl,
i believe brett cuts his own shingles, but i don't know that for a fact. they're laser cut out of a very thin wood material. i don't have a micrometer, or i'd measure it) he hints in the manual that we will be further weathering them later on.
mike, i think the gardens are going to look great this year. we added several perennials and stuck some annuals in there too. our back yard is in direct sun most of the day, so flowers do quite well back there. maybe i'll post a couple pics after they start blooming.

Kevin, your shingles look great!
How will you finish off the top ridge?
