Thanks Jim and Ted, I'm feeling better about the siding since I removed the zebra or too much gray patchwork look. Using a different technique sometimes come out different than you see it in your planning imagination.

Thanks Bob, I didn't show how I did the standard steps to help speed up the build.

Thanks Bill, wow... your word cracklin reminds me of something I missed moving around the country. I'm going to have to find someplace to buy them again. Growing up, cracklins were a snack that we purchased from local farmers during the fall pig butchering season.

Thanks Mike, I think it looks better but I'm looking for the roof and silo to improve it.

Jumped ahead a few steps and added a rusty roof using Frank’s white glue on a brush dipped in rust powder technique. (refer to Frank Palmers: a very-very wicked wanda in Mike Chambers Craftsmans’ Corner in RRL search engine)

Frank, this is a great way to rust a roof...Thanks!



Also added the dock floor, the rusty cupola, a sliding door, signs and trim boards around the roof.





Next task will be the silo.

Dave, your "Palmer Feed" looks excellent!
I look forward to seeing how you will build the silo for it.

Woser,Woser, Perfect job Dave'.. The Palmer roof technique, and it is difficult to believe the siding is paper. This is an excellent build. I love the nail holes too. You haven't missed a trick'...

David,

Palmer feed store is a master study in flaking paint, rust and disrepair.
