Fred I had to go back to page 1 and check out the original. Man there is a massive amount of gingerbread on this building. I canít wait to see the banking drive-thru lanes.

Thanks, Philip!!

Yeah, Carl, the porches will be a piece of cake.

Thanks, George, Jim and Pete!!

Bill -

Thanks, Jerry!!

Frank, the more I study this thing the more gingerbread I see that's not initially apparent.

I'm still debating on whether to do the roofs next or the porch. I was thinking I didn't want to do the porch until the foundation is done but I might be better off the other way around. I also need to decide, real soon, if I am going to do this as a complete build, 360 degrees. I could stop now, do the porch and roofs and have a nice little house. But if you look at the total footprint of this house I've basically only done the toes so far. Decisions, decisions...

I'm still plugging away at this. I've been taking advantage of the warm spring weather when it's here to get the lawn and landscaping in shape.

Been working on the porch.



I'm not at all certain that is what the deck looks like, but I am quite certain that is the way I did it. The upper part has been a real bear. I am not sure how I am going to do the columns but for now anyway I think I will wait on them until I get the house on it's foundation and everything flat and square before I figure it out. And I'm back to trying to decide my next move.

fred,
between you and mr. santos, you guys are making a superstar out of simple styrene and i'm sure opening quite a few eyes (like mine) on this forum to its virtues.
that porch looks fantastic. absolutely fantastic. the entire structure looks fantastic.
i just went back and looked at the prototype pics. holy smokes. you'll be cutting styrene bits for days. i can't wait to see how you tackle those spindles.

Nice work Fred. I knew I should have kept building buildings instead of boats, they are much easier! LOL
You're doing such a great job on this, as usual.

Thanks, Jerry, Bob, Frank and Carl !!

Thanks, Kevin. Are you any kin to Kebmo, who used to be a forum member? (Just kidding, I know about your log-in issues). I assume you mean the porch railing spindles? The good news is that I want be doing those. I believe they were an add-on by the bank. There's a handicap ramp behind them. Which I'm sure was not part of the original house.

Thanks, Rich. Still waiting for you to get back to "something new" on your bench.
