Bruce,

Iíve had that experience of doing a search and having some of my own photos pop up, often from the Forum.

Coincidentally, the other day I was leafing through RMC from about a decade ago and came across your article on slate roofs. I read it through and found it to be very good. Slate is important in the era I model. You taught me some new things and confirmed some others.

Mike

Great looking model, Bruce. I like seeing a photo of the old layout being put to use on the future layout!

Karl, Chuck, and both Mikes. Thanks for checking in.

The foundation is now on Kate's place. I will do more coloring of the stones with chalks once I am done handling the building.

Next up is making a some wood decking that will wrap around the left side of the building and form a larger deck on the back under the 'store front' window I put there.

I've never heard of those foundation sticks before. They worked good for your foundation.

Thanks, Pete & George.

George, I mitered the corners at 45 degrees and all worked well. Since I was going to cover some of the foundation with the wood walkway, and being of Dutch heritage, I substituted some plain 5/32" wood stripping where it would not be seen. I didn't have any 5/32" square stripwood on hand, but I did have some 1/16" x 5/32" stock. I didn't think that I had enough gluing surface on the 1/16" side of those strips, so I made "L-Girders" out of them to give me more gluing surface.




The walkway in progress.




Kate's Kitchen sign on at last.

Bruce, my Scottish heritage allows me to fully understand what you're doing.

Pasties! I love Pastie pies. Looks like a nice cozy place to eat. I love the interior and sign work.

Really nice additions Bruce. Those foundation sticks certainly make it easy, rather than carving your own.
The patio should be a nice alfresco dining area.

Thanks, guys.

Pete was worried that Kate would have to walk outside in bad weather to deliver the food to the dining area. So, overnight I had a crew add a Dutch Door between the kitchen and the dining area. Now Kate can just open the top part of the door and hand the food through.




(I just grabbed a photo of a Dutch Door off the Web, resized it to HO scale, and printed it out on 40Lb paper. Add some transfer tape to the rear, and voila!)

Glad that you enjoyed the article, Mike. I also have an EduTRAIN clinic on slate roofs up on the NMRA website that covers a lot of that material.

Looks good Bruce. I like the idea of the Dutch door.

Iíve been known to do things like gluing up 4 by 4ís to make 8 by 8ís.

I believe I saw that video.

Bruce great job!

I see keeping up with the times we have outside dining!!

I suppose inside is 25% capacity?
