i decided the hotel (that was built in 1863) needed an abandoned outhouse in the back so i started to build one. i got the framing done on the back and two side walls and i'm working on the front wall tonight.



once i get the framing completed i will side it with these boards, and i need a few ideas to make them look more decrepit once installed.

i sided the walls and am now working on the doors.




i'm gonna try and do some 'rot' in the bottom left rear corner of the structure. only one of the door is going to be open so i built a separating wall and a commode for one side[no pic], and i painted styrene tube black for the stink stack.
i still have alot of weathering to do.....

Kevin, I agree with all of the others comments regarding your weathered wood on your new outhouse.
It does look fabulous!

bill, jerry, frank, carl, gregg, and bob:
thank your for your kind comments. I hope to finish the doors tonight and start putting this critter together.
i have poured a "concrete" base out of hyrocal, and carved out a recess for it in the foam base to plant it. it's gonna be a 3" x 3" diorama that will ultimately become a part of the larger diorama for the fish camp.
i put three different grays in the hydrocal to eliminate the white. then after the hydrocal cured for 5 days, i took a plumber brush to it to give it some texture, similar to crumbling cement. i hope it all works......

thanks jim.
the walls are ready for glueing.





the four walls, cedar sheets for
the shake shingle roof, a separation wall with a sh*tter glued to it, the concrete pad and the foam base the concrete will be embedded in, with the stink stack on a toothpick stuck in it.
mahbe tomorrow night i'll get them glued together and the roof started.
