My project for the challenge is a small engine house. Last July, Frederic Testard posted a sketch he made of a small engine house he was planning for his So Martins de Rio Valbergue. Here's the site: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=39027&whichpage=19

It was a real eye catcher and I started working on a set of drawings with the idea of building it some day. When Bruce announced the challenge, I PM'd Frederic and asked his permission to build it. He graciously said yes and I finished the drawings. I'm planning to use some commercial windows and doors as well as scratchbuilt ones. Here's an isometric drawing of the way I'm going to build it. It will be HO scale.

Very nice, George.

Is this going to be a paper project?

I can only think of one improvement you could make .....

Thanks, guys. I think this will be fun.

Larry, no critter yet, but I have a Grandt line 25 ton loco that's begging me to build. Maybe after I finish it's house.

Mark, watch for the paper, and no it's not going to be On30.

Very neat! I remember Frederic's drawing - I thought it looked familiar.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks all. I almost have as much fun with making drawings as I do building the structures.

The rough sketch and the computer rendering are really nice, George. This structure will be a real winner! Looking forward to following along!
