    Scott thank you so much. I figured as in the real world, different roofs on buildings would not all
    be the same; plus I get to learn something new to boot.

    Larry,

    The office really looks good! Nice scratch build. I like the look of the plank roof and the roofing varieties.

    Philip and Dave thank you.

    Karl thanks. Yes the Artistic License is in full force on the CC&W; although I'm going back and
    add battens to the Office roof just for arguments sake. About the only time it rains is when I
    spray a 50/50 mixture fo glue and water doing the scenery.Lol.

    Michael thanks for the tree suggestion; hopefully there's enough room with the coal bin going in; we'll see.

    Larry,

    Fine looking office.

    I like the idea of situating it among the trees. If you remove a tree, I suggest that you snuggle it next to the office, out of line with the rest of the trees.

    I like what you’ve been doing, Larry. I’m a bit behind in perusing the treasures found in so many place on the RR-L. Quite a log that boy’s fixin to split. I saw a young fellow trying to get ahold of on that relative size with a Bobcat this morning. It was almost as big as the machine…

    I like the look of the roof but wonder if some battens between the boards might keep the rain out. But then, it never does rain on the layout. I’m sure it says so in your Artistic License somewhere in or around subsection 3.6.8a

    Rick thanks. I have already removed the one pine tree, which I will use some place else on the layout, and the Office
    fits nicely. I may have to run some 1x4's over the joints to make it look water tight like an engine shed.

    Interesting choice for the roof.
    Nice colors on the roof.
    Only concern is that it doesn't look water tight.
    Removing one of the trees and moving the office back sounds like a good idea,

    Jerry thank you. Yes I'm pretty sure the Office is going to end up between the pine trees. The coal bin will be made narrower
    so that it will fit the area as well.

    Probably the next steps will be finishing up what little bit of scenery that still needs to be done; then move on to making up six
    or so On30 scale flat and box cars. After that maybe updating a few of the early made buildings.

    I do have a small diorama in mind that I would like to build sometime in the near future just for a break from the layout; we'll see.

    Nice job Larry. I think you have an idea there setting it between the two pine trees. It will look right at home.

    If your done with buildings what will be next on the RR??

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

    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.

    Kyle thank you for the nice compliment, it's much appreciated. Glad you and the "Werewolf" are following along.
    Actually he/she looks like a "critter of the night".

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