Well done, Dave! Nicely innovated, and thanks for fixing the window! We don't need unhappy lawyers!

Dave,

Thatís a beautiful little office. Youíre doing a great job.

For future reference, Grandtline makes a dentil molding, part 5211. However, you came up with a good alternative and you didnít have to pay for shipping.

Looks great Dave. All that extra detail will certainly keep it true to the prototype.
Very ingenious.
I also like the colour scheme.


Regards Rob

My current build.

A neat little project Dave, I like the way you did both the interior and outside walls.

Mike, I thought Grandt did dental trim, but I couldn't find any in my stash. Thanks for the part number. (My stash badly needs reorganizing...)

I did a 'light test' with a flashlight in the dark. That showed some leaks on one corner, that I tightened up.


Then I added some .015 x .020 trim along the outside of the roof over the walls. This makes a nice removable roof.

The structure from below:

Side view


I'll add more trim to finish up the vertical part of the roof, strips of painted and unpainted .015 strips.

I constructed trim by painting a .015x.030 strip on edge. Then I -carefully- sandwiched that between an unpainted (white) .015 x .030 on the bottom and .015 x .040 unpainted strip on the top, the net result is a trim strip that is .085 tall. I cut and edge-glued that to the roof, and added reinforcement (.080 square) behind these on the porch.

This needs a bit of paint touch-up.

Then I glued the pillars to the porch slab.


So-far-so-good. The Motrak chairs and tables for the interior arrived today. I'll work on those tonight and tomorrow, and then tackle the gable roof.
