  • Nice scene Larry. That guy will be muscle bound by nightfall!!

    Framing a little big but you know those NY state winds can be pretty rough at time!
    Nice and neat good job framing.

    • Dave thank you and thanks for stopping by.

      Jerry thanks. I was looking for stability when I decided to go with 6x6's;
      although in hind sight next time it'll be 4x4's instead. Once sided though
      you can't tell.

      • Looks great! Where did that sledge hammer figure come from? I always use 6x6 or 2x6. They really don't look out of scale to me.
        Nice little scene Larry!

        • Philip thank you. Glad I'm not alone on my lumber selection. Now that it's sided you can't tell anyway.
          The figure came with the Wood Cutters kit and made up quite nicely.

          • Works been continuing somewhat on the layout, so here's an update of what's been going on:

            This is the Office for the business end of the layout. It was constructed similar to the Shack with the dimensions actually
            being the same as the shed. The windows are leftovers from building the Shack. The color of the wood is a little lighter than
            the Shack mainly because I didn't want things to match.

            Here is the left end and again the window was a leftover. Added some signs but kept it to a minimum.

            This is the right end which was left pretty much blank since the coal bin will be butted up against this end. Depending how
            large the coal bin is will dictate if the Office gets moved to the left a little or not.

            Next will be finishing the roof which will be some sort of wood and the ends. Also need to add a few nail holes here and there as well as
            adding a foundation. After that I'll build a long narrow coal bin which will be built to fit the space.

            That's it for now and thanks for looking.

                  • Thanks Jerry, Rick, and Michael for the nice comments. It was fun seeing if I could scratch build the Office and have it
                    look as good as the kit Shack.

                      • Interesting Sierra included figures. you never know what he's up to.

                        The office building is taking shape. Well done!

                        • Mike thank you. The wood roof will be going on hopefully soon.

                          Philip thanks. Brett owns another company so that's where the figure came from.
                          I did have to remove some white metal flashing from around the head area but the
                          figure painted up quite nicely.

                          • Great job on the bldg. I like the color, and the little 'flaws' or holes in the siding. Very realistic! Keep it up.

                              • Been messing around with the Office so here's the progress of what's been done:

                                Click image for larger version  Name:	IMG_C05.jpg Views:	0 Size:	89.3 KB ID:	993866

                                The extra nail holes have been added to the siding along with the foundation being completed. Decided to do a different take
                                on the wood roof. Colored up some 1x10's and went lengthwise this time instead of actual small shingles for a different look.
                                The ridge cap is made from 1x4's going across the peak of the roof. Even though the back side of the roof doesn't show I still
                                decided to add the wood as well.

                                Here are both end views of the Office. I'm rather pleased with the way this scratch build turned out. Not sure about the placement
                                of the Office yet as the area is a little tight. I'm toying with the idea of eliminating one of the pine trees and tucking the Office in
                                between the other two pines. This should give me a little more wiggle room with the road being in front of the building.

                                Next will be building the coal bin and adding a few detail pieces parts. After that probably will finish ballasting the last little bit of
                                track in front of these buildings. This will just about finish the construction of buildings on the layout and also the Wood Cutters box
                                is almost empty except for a little extra lumber which will be used on other projects.

                                That's where I'm at for the moment and thanks for taking a look.
