Walls assembled and bits of bracing, etc. added.

Martin,
Nice craftsmanship!
I like the appearance of the siding and especially the storefront.

Since I got it assembled, I learned the actually size so I made a floor to mount it onto. Some scrap stock glued up and some polymeric resin casting stone scraps that I glued to the sides and cut to width with the bandsaw - nasty stuff and well worth running the shop vac.





Some 1/16" thick scribed siding for the floor - marks are where screws from underneath will secure the structure if/when an interior is installed.

Nice looking base. Band saws are handy.

Thanks! I find making a good base under structures is important as opposed to just basic open box structures.

Band saws seem to minimize bloodshed, too!
