Fabricated a Chimney from styrofoam and carved notches to receive brick.



Added bricks made with sculpty fired clay:



Painted bricks to look old and grungy justifying a parge coating of cement to help hold old bricks in place.



Added a patching plaster parge coating. (Looks neat on a model building but in reality parge coatings were basically cosmetic)



Added stack:



I see I missed trim boards under the roof extension. Ill add trim along with deck roof but first, for a change of pace, Im going to switch projects and start to work on the office.

Dave,

This building is coming along nicely. That's a nifty way to do that chimney. I will have to take that into consideration when I do one. Thanks.

I like the technique.

But have you already painted the chimney, or are you doing it in place?

Beautiful work, Dave. Chimney, stack and cupola: all add interest to a fine model.

Thanks Rich, Pete, Frank, Carl, Ted, Mike, Fred, Bob and Mike!

Carl the chimney is coated with plaster and weathering dirt added. The photos seem to wash out the weathering detail.

Office walls are cut from black foamboard.



Used paper siding as usual but this time I tried a new approach. I wanted the office to look like vertical board construction in lieu of my usual painted horizontal siding.
Searched the internet and found an old painted board print that looked promising.



Stretched and widened the print to fit an 8 1/2x 11 format for printing. After printing I glued the new copies to black construction paper to stiffen the print paper thereby making thicker boards to ease glueing of the boards to the foamboard.

After 8 1/2 x 11 assembly was dry I cut the pattern into individual boards. Note I left the boards joined at the top to keep the individual boards from mixing together and cut apart as I needed them. I wanted to use the original pattern on the walls of the office and if I cut all of the boards and piled them up it would have been a large puzzle to match the boards per the original print.



Next step was to glue the boards to the wall keeping a small gap between the boards to pick up the black foamboard underneath.



Enlarged view to show board texture and joints. Overall the technique came out as I had hoped it would.
