Howdy folks,

I finally made some progress on the dinning room. This has been the most difficult car/building I have scratchbuilt. Designing and building the roof so it is removable to show the interior has kicked my rear end. After making 13 roof trusses, I had to take them apart. Bad approach.

Today I started my next technique building the roof trusses with a template:



The tricky bit was to build the half roof sections, so I decided to use framing pieces covered by tar paper. Here are the frames with a sample of shingles:



The rafters were held in place with transfer adhesive.

Last but not least, I glued the two sides of the structure together.



That about it for today.

Have fun,
Mike C

I just reviewed this tread. Nice Job. I like the insulation.

Howdy folks,

Jerry, Mark, Rick, Philip, and Robert thank you for the encouragement. Building a roof so it can be removed has really been a challenge. I need moral support frequently!

Today I applied shingles to tarpaper strips, then attached the strips to the battens. Finally, the shingle roof was added to the rafters.

It was tricky for me to figure out how to lay out the rafters so the spacing was even. It didn't seem to be a simple process, but I finally figured out how to subtract the end rafters from the count. The rafters are 3.5' apart which seems to replicate the prototype on these structures.

Here are a few shots of the process. Now I am down for a glass of Malbec before I start the other side.


Battens with tar paper applied




Shingles applied to roof assembly and test fit on dining room.




Rafters glued to batten and shingle assembly



Next up is attaching the purlin to the rafter ends and begin work on the other side.

Have fun,
Mike

Really good job. Do I see Rusty Stumps shingles? In any case, they look perfect for a camp car.
