    I really appreciate all the nice compliments!

    Frank, At one time I had the pro version, was lost when my computer crashed. Lost everything.

    Bernd, Following your thread! See bottom photo.

    I finally received my lumber from Northwest! Eight days from order to door for those interested in ship time. Packed nicely with lots of peanut packaging.



    All wall plans are finished so I'll start with the short end wall. Something easy and hopeful for a quick build. I modified all the plans, made many changes trying to get a balanced look. I also doubled up the bottom of the window openings to burn more lumber. Actually to give a more prototype look. As a former trim carpenter I was always adding nailers that framers seem to forget about.



    During the last week I also modified a Bachmann Cattle car, cut off the walls and roof, shortened to about 19'. Adding a hunkered down Bachmann frame my son-in-law gave me for Christmas. Added stake pockets (wiseman)/ posts. It's close to paint. Figured I'd share.





    Bernd, I want you to see the resemblance! I may have to go vertical.



    I'll try to post progress soon! Thanks again!

          It looks like true to prototype framing. The windows appear to be upside down; I assume that’s temporary.

          Like your drawings your framing is neat and clean.

                    Framing looks like it's up to code. :up:

                      Thanks Rick, Louis, Carl, Jerry, Mike, Larry, Rich, Frank,and Bernd!

                      My rigmarole continues at a snails pace. Finally finished the door drawing. Had to make changes to the rough opening, hinge supports and arch.



                      Rough frame with arch installed. I dipped the 2x6 in hot water, bent over a pill bottle, resoaked in hot water and then finish formed it to size with a 1/2" dowell rod. Tiny shims added for alignment. the sole plate will be removed after wall up.

                      Side walls next.

                        Outstanding framing construction and doors. Well done Philip. Great idea for forming your archway overhead.

                        Maybe yes on the "snails pace", but precise work being produced here!

                          The doors and wall look really nice. I like the precise nature of your work.

                                Very impressive. Really like the work you did on the arch.
