Thanks Greg, Mike & Frank. I'm very happy with the shingle finish. Finally getting some character on the structure.

Added the upper floor loading platform.


I've attached all the smaller doors now. For the two ends the doors open outwards.
The front doors open inwards as this area will be partly enclosed.







I've also added a painted "wainscot" to the outside to give it some more character and that New England feel.

Thanks Mike, Frank & Scott.

I have now started on the balcony for the structure.
Made up the decking from balsa and carved in the board lines, and also the sides are made.




The sides are balsa sheet inside, with basswood weatherboards laminated on the outside.
To make a strong corner join, I cut a strip of weatherboard siding, and attached it to the back of the balcony side, upside down , that way it will interlock with the boards on the building wall for a tight strong fit.



Here's where I'm at, at the moment. Rafters and roof on it next, and more shingles.

Rob, your upside down clapboard joinery technique is very cool!
