Nice work on that clerestory Mike. I've always thought that those dress up the looks of a logging structure. [:-cowboy][:-thumbu]

Hi Mike,
I think you ordered some of my newly posted cedar shingles on the Rail-Scale-Models website.
Have you had a chance to compare them to the ones you had from Rusty Stumps ?? How do they look ??
Hope they work out for you. :)

Howdy Steven,

They are beautiful. I'll start applying them tomorrow to the clerestory. Thanks for tweaking them a bit.

Have fun,
Mike

Howdy folks,

Alas, I return! I've been working on bits and pieces over the last eight months, but serious work has been delayed by life events.

Here are a few photos of work to date. Significant are the addition of the floor and the clerestory windows complete with glazing and frames, construction of the clerestory roofing, construction of the internal wall, and Cricut work on window and door screens.

The roofing is far from the final color and tone. They now sport a base coat.

Have fun,
Mike

Thanks Jerry and Michael,

The tedious part is just about to begin: interior details. In the mood so hope I can finish fast. ~ Mike

Howdy folks,

Here are a few photos of progress to date. I just finished the tricky bit of running electrical wires for the kerosene lanterns inside the dining and storage areas. The LED lead wires were too small to snake down the walls, so I soldered a leader wire which was thicker. That did the trick.




Here is a photo of a lantern hanging from a cross brace. You can see the leads which have not been tucked behind the wall paper.




An top view of one cross brace with lantern installed. Tedious work.




All the braces and lanterns installed. Whew!



Next up will be the connecting of the wiring under the structure before adding the sled runners that will cover resisters and wiring.

Have fun,
Mike
