        My sincere apologies to all who are following me on this journey.
        I have been away due to a reaccuring medical condition that has made it unbearable to model at my workbench or sit at my computer.
        I will be back..just one of the many things one looks forward to as we age...

                    Thanks for your continued push Dave G., Jerry, Mike, and Ray, glad to have you along.

                    I have achieved the final coloring of the stones on the main stone building and I am happy with the results.

                    Note: The bricks at the bottom in the picture are not yet completed.
                    The underside of the stone portico has the steel I-beams and the steel floor joists,
                    along with pads to accept the brick pillars.

                    The loading docks are in their final resting place, more on that later.

                        • Thanks for following along, Scott, Bill and Phillip.

                          I have a problem with Sciatic Nerve Pain, from my lower back to my ancle on one side and
                          sitting for extended periods bothers it more. I will get through it, although it's not life threatening.
                          It's just uncomfortable, that's all. Thanks for the well-wishes.

                          • Rick - Thanks, much appreciated !

                            Phillip - Thanks

                            Here's some more pictures with one of the room lights off. It's difficult trying to photograph without proper lighting.

                            These are all the pictures I have of the stone coloring .
                            The floquil stains I used, I think did a better job of coloring than using any other paints on this porous hydrocal.

                            Thanks for all of the nice comments.

                              • Rich, I agree with others that your stone color is at its best. Fantastic progress.
                                Sciatic Nerve Pain can be painful for sure, that I know first hand as well. Although, yours is due to carrying that loaded wallet in your rear pocket.
