          I painted the windows and door. And, stained the structure with a brown shoe dye and denatured alcohol mixture. Then placed the stained walls under a piece of glass to dry, and prevent warpage. The next process will be to make the interior wall framing, and place the ends onto the front, and rear wall sections. This I believe will take up most of the time with this build, where all the interior wall, roof and rafter framing will be visible. As well as a pot belly coal stove, and store sales counter placed in the store.

            I use a tripod for everything I shoot, but it won't get high enough....

                I've been out of town and just catching up on this build, Louis. It's nice to follow one of your projects again, there's always good information provided. I like the masking tape behind the wood before you do the drilling.

                  Thanks Carl for your post, I don't use any tripods, I just hold the camera and shoot away.

                      Thanks George for your comments and following along. I found that when the tape is used, it controls the cracking and splitting from happening.

                        Looks like your coming right along on your build. I really like to
                        color of the outside; looks like it's been around for a while.

                          just hold the camera...

                          I guess me being 5" 9" just doesn't cut it.

                            Louis,

                            Looks terrific so far. I'm looking forward to seeing how you do the framing and how you paint and stain everything.

                            Mike

                                You need to stand on a stool then to get a helicopter view.
