May have been a bad burrito caused event, but very nicely modeled!

Love the privacy. I hate to say this but I remember going to my aunt and uncles, in Union Beach NJ, to help dig a new hole so we could move the outhouse over.

I planted it on it's base last night and have half of it roofed. i'm hoping to finish this critter today.







note the rot in the bottom left corner of the rear wall ala ken karnes.

What happened to "Forty Yards to the Outhouse", I don't see a path to the door.

Really nice job.

i'm calling the outhouse finished. it's gonna be behind the hotel and won't be visible unless you really make an effort to see it, so i figure, enough is enough. back to working on the hotel. anyway, here's the finished outhouse::
















next up, reworking the light boxes on the fron wall, and then cobbling together a wiring rack {for lack of a better word) to accommodate the long distance between light locations.

Kevin,

Aside from the lack of privacy, I donít think Iíd go in that wreck. Just too dangerous.

Remarkably good modeling!

Mike

Those wild flowers (weeds) add a bit of a fragrance to it. I'm with Frank on this, it would do really well in a contest. Super job Kevin!

i bought an o scale power pole kit from micro mark and stuck some 1mm green balls on the insulators to make it look a bit more authentic:




then i put together a lighting rig with 2 1/4" pieces of stock. i stuck copper tape to them so i could light up both ends of the front wall.




then i redid the three light boxes on the front wall:









i ordered a new soldering iron yesterday that'll be here tomorrow so i can get the lights soldered in and glue the front and end walls up. once that's done i can start on the roofs.
