Pill bottles for stripwood organized use, great idea! Now fumbling for the right stripwood won't be a PILL anymore.

Hard to do when you don't have a basement....

Exactly Louis! except those 7x9 and other odd sizes

Thanks Carl! It almost went on the wall and may eventually.

After almost two weeks progress!
Made a change in the shed length. It is now 34'6" length due to limited space. Width remains the same.

The rafter jig has served it's purpose. This is a first for square cut rafter tails. Much easier yet the lengths wander a bit, 147 & 3/8! Carpenter hears something else.


Some photos along the way. Purlin next and a shoddy tin roof will keep the locos dry. Siding is stained in a Mike Chambers mixture.


I like the shorter length much better. I'm quartering two 2-4-0 Porters.



Ladder overhangs on both ends.

I agree with Larry. It was worth the time invested in making that jig. Your framing is fantastic. Even your roofing outriggers are prototype. Great job here Philip!

Everything looks very precise. Your locos are going to have a good home.

Now that is some neat framing. (In multiple meanings of the word 'neat'.)

South wall is up, work continues on the north side. I'm also beefing up the flimsy rafters as I go.
