Carl,

Your structure looks more interesting every time I look at your drawings. I particularly like the windows you are using. The foundation looks great.

Nice work Carl. Your pictures on p. 9 look a little far away, that I can't see the wall edges. Are you planning on adding the corner posts, or did you decide to align them so they meet without needing any?

Thank you very much Mike, Rich and Kevin.

Rich- Yes sir, I'll be adding corner posts, they'll be painted the same color as the windows and doors.

Kevin- You can bet it's not yellow.

The wall color is Folk Art Warm White. The first coat was applied, then heavily braced. Board and batten sheet can be a bit "uncooperative".



The window, doors and trim were painted Folk Art Clover.



Added corner posts. Glued in the windows and doors, temporary rubber bands just sitting on the foundations, now painted with a first coat.



A unique design feature is how the second story stands slightly proud of the 1st story, on all 4 sides. The front, back and side gables were built, braced and then attached to the outside of a full second floor. I installed extra bracing to the gables to keep them plumb, and provide stability & strength for the future roof cards.



On the bottoms of the 2nd floors, I attached woods "guides" along the perimeter of each unit to keep them aligned to the walls, and actually snug fit inside. There's a lot more glue area too.



I switched gears to build a small detail. A brick faced boiler (which I mistakenly called an "oven") was suggested for the workshops' back wall. To be assembled with plastic brick sheet and cardstock. Nope, don't think so. Carved this from a scrap piece of 1/4" thick sheet plaster of Paris.



Painted up with a (square of styrene) cleanout door at the bottom.



Till next time....lighting prep(already?)...

Looking good Carl.

Is that Masonite triangles supporting those gables square?

Nice job on the brick boiler face.

Looking good, Carl.

The brickwork on the boiler came up very nicely.

I like the idea of holding the top story gable walls plumb with the triangles.

Cheers, Mark.
