      Troels

      I'm sorry to hear about your foot. We all take our health for granted until it's gone...

      I can't wait for your PAL video as the youtube clip looks brilliant

        I apologize for my poor reading- Sorry. The structure looks good with lots of character already showing. I think you should remove the temptation from the good citizens of Convers by adding bars to that rear window. Besides they would look good. Especially with a few layers of rust on them.

        Please keep the "So Fine" work a coming.

          Bob, I live in an area where bars on windows are rarely needed... so hadn't thought about that... I'll look into it thanks!

          Kathy, you're right, but also younger than me ;-) I'm in the repair period of age, so no real surprises (unless one should wake up one morning without something hurting...)

            the fruit and veg stand looks nice, i have to admit though, i do get a kick out of your drawings! maybe when your are "done" with the layout you could sell them off? for chairty of course.

            will be following like a hawk as done with the other volumes

              Looks good Troels. I have seen batten over tar paper construction on some of the logging photos that I am cataloging for the museum.

                Jim, this is board and batten, without modeling the boards ;-)

                    I don't think you'd find bars on windows in Maine during your era. Sometimes a wire mesh was used to protect from an errant ball or farm tool but thievery wasn't a main concern back then.

                    Small towns had their constables to take care of crime and it wasn't hard to determine who a thief was through word of mouth or a little old fashioned detective work.

                    That reminds me that I think you need some sort of law enforcement for the town. Maybe a small room in the town hall building. The only local department that got it's own building was the fire department.

                    I started my law enforcement career as a constable in one room of the local school (almost 50 years ago).

                      My grandfather was a Justice of the Peace and had an office in his house where the constable would bring the offenders to by tried. Troels, you could hang a shingle on a house denoting the JP's office.

                        Thanks for the law and order suggestions! I want to keep the town of Convers cozy and warm, so no bars on windows... I'll try to find a nice foot-patroling policeman...

                        The Furlow's has been developed a little further, with front windows and door, some more detailing, a roof, and some paint. Awning next...

                          I like it. I also vote for a peaceful time when you could leave a door open and find everything was still there when you came back.

                            Like we have it here, Frederic?

                            We have very little reason to lock our doors here... :-)

                              Ah Michael, I would want to agree, but I must say the only time I've been stolen something was in a Swedish restaurant...
