    J.B.Speed owned a limestone quarry in Milltown, Indiana. In later years after abandoned it picked up the nickname Devil's Mountain. I'm bulding a small quarry. I'm needing a few odds and ends. An engine shed is first on my agenda. A rough timber structure. More details will follow. Have all the wall plans complete, still need to finalize the truss and coupla vents.

        Thanks Lou!

        Here is the hopeful final plan with jacks and kingstuds in place. The window and door openings are Tichy #2014 and #2021. Waiting on supplies from northeastern scale lumber. Hope this plan will work. I may need to adjust the stud width when I do the overlay on wax paper. Ah what's another day training at something I need practice with! Corrected footprint is: 16 X 40'6"

          I'm following as well.

          Philip, your drawings are nice, what software do you use?

            Quarry? Now that got my attention. Any chance you know why?

            I'll definitely be following along. Nice start on a building. I'm going to be doing something similar with my quarry project.

                  Philip your architectural drawings are very well made, and serve their purpose of conveying intent, scope and direction you are headed in. The quality of your drawings are spot on.

                    Philip,

                    Your engine shed is looking good already! The large doors with round tops add a bit of class.

                    Maybe you will motivate Bernd to work on his engine shed; he must be getting tired of stonework.

                      I hope you're talking about the HO roundhouse I want to build? I've shoved all my TT scale projects, including the TT scale engine house, in a drawer probably never to be opened again. 8D

                          Carl, The program is cad std.

                          Free download here: http://www.cadstd.com/

                          I use it for all my structures. Something I can actually navigate with ease without the huge learning curb. It will print to scale dead on!

                            After looking at the Free vs: Pro, I'd go with the Pro version. For $37.50 you get so much more. Offsets and fillets are a huge help. I use them all the time with my cad program.

                              I will be following along with you too, Phillip. This looks like another winning project, especially if it's built by you!
