    Thanks Larry, when all is finished I'll be weathering with a white ink wash that makes the wood really old and weathered looking. Thanks for following along.

      I guess me being 5" 9" just doesn't cut it.
      It's not all that difficult Carl. I'm 5'8" and gets her done. I'm not more than 1 foot to 1-1/2 foot from the projects when I photo them.

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

        Thanks Mike for your posting comments and following along with this build. See this page of this thread, "Lou’s Skid Shacks Construction"; https://railroad-line.com/node/39642/page4
        It shows the same process I'll be using for the interior framing. Here is one of the photos during the build.

              That's just a shot from another thread to show how I'll go about building the walls.

                      Thanks MikeM, MikeH and Bernd.

                      So as you see the same process I'll use on this structure, but also add in the fire stops about midway up the framing.

                        So I'm stalling here for a break. Laziness set in for awhile I guess.
                        I took the original picture of the rear of the camp store, and used Adobe Photoshop to manipulate the Skew, and Perspective, to try and get a better facing view of the framing and interior walls. Using this to try and come-up with an interior set-up for my own camp store.
                        Soon I'll get back the energy to press on. I leave you with the rear section prototype picture that I'll be working from.

                          Louis, a little break in the action to let everyone catch up with all your progress. Looking good!

                          Do you think they just butted the two halves against each other on the ground? I don't see any signs of bolt holes or other fasteneing evidence in the most recent photo.

                            Hi Bill, that is my thinking. There so no detailed information on how they mated the two halves together.
                            Old Union Lumber Company. A portable store built at a Camp 1 in halves and shipped to camp on log cars. June 1921. Info found from here; https://www.mendotraintony.com/old-u...y-photographs/

                              Ok, Louis... I'm back for another look-see... great progress so far. You will be using stripwood for your interior walls? Not styrene?
                              Nice work on all the windows too.

                              I must admit, the last few days have taken me away from having time to view anyone's threads, or being able to begin anything for me.
                              The only time I get a few minutes to check over the forum, is about this time of night when my wife is sleeping. I spend all day forging
                              throught the 1:1 projects..with no end in sight...I will check in when I can.
