All plaster foundation pieces have finally been trimmed, cut to size and glued together. Plenty of extra bracing too(and plaster dust). Corners have joint compound applied, once dry will be re-scribed to maintain stone courses.



Before the main walls can be made, 2 sets of doors need to be built. A helpful template for the freight doors was included. Glued 1x4, 1x6, 1x8 and 1x10 strip wood directly to the sketches...



Then cut away the paper where it isn't needed....



Glued delicate frame directly to 1/16" scribed siding. Framed out the exterior trim with 4" x 16". These doors will be recessed back from the walls 8". Now ready to cut the holes in the walls to accept these...



A closer look at the elevations show that these are basically twin structures, one smaller than its neighbor.

Front:



Back:



3/32" spacing board and batten will be used for all the walls in both buildings. I replaced the suggested standard 4 pane windows with #8072 Tichy arch top versions. All walls are kept long while I cut all holes, then trimmed to proper length.

I replaced the small windows suggested with Tichy "work car windows" #8068. Another Tichy double door, one with a transom, and an extra-wide orphan door with frame I found in my "extras" drawer. Now with front, back and side gables complete, ready for paint. My recipient of the model must choose some paint colors....



Till next time....paint, gables & an oven?

Carl, looking good!
My recent cathedral that I built is in need of a pipe organ, can I place an order yet?
if not, can I at least have some of these cookies that Frank & Dave are talking about?

Carl,
Just started following. Nice work! My step mom played the pipe organ in church.
I like the buildings design as well.

Love that stone work Carl. Looks great.

For a guy playing around trying to make blocks, could you give me the height of a single row? Just curious.

Rest of the building looks nice and clean.

Looking good, Carl.

Those arch top windows will give it quite a different look.

Re the organ - I guess it depends of what sort of organs they are building. If they are making pipe organs then I guess you will need racks of pipe and timber. With the eventual size of many of these organs I guess it would have been impossible to construct on the premises, but instead the pipes carted to to the church or cathedral where they would have been constructed on site. Maybe a truck with some racks for carting pipe?

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks Frank, Dave G, Greg, Fred, David, Scott, Bernd, Mark and Mike!

Bernd- The foundation block rows are 3/32" high or about .09".

Note: Depending on my friends layout needs, this project may not become "Organ Works" ... I believe it's generic enough to suit several categories....

As much as I like cookies, I used an incorrect word. My apologies. Actually I should have said "boiler". Because that's what's on the "alternate back wall" plan, which we have decided to use.
