Hi All;

Hi Frederick & Peter:

Thanks for the kind words. Here's the walls of the 1st building stained with the infamous Driftwood stain.

Karl, do you plan on using the provided interior? It looks like it would show up very well. Pat

Looks like from the mat board it's going to be 2" x 3". And that makes it another great kit by Bar Mills for me. Thanks for posting this build, great start.

Hi Guys:

Thanks for the compliments. Here's a photo of the main building walls assembled.
Also the O-scale question. Artie told me he may do them as sepaate kits in O-scale to keep the price down. That way you O-scalers can order them sepaately.

Cool little building Karl. Some real interesting roof lines.

Youve done a great job so far. How did you do the chimney?

Very nice, Karl. I agree with Wes, there are some interesting shapes in this structure.
