Bob,

Me too, count me in.. it's always a treat to see what you build. I will grab one of the front row seats before Bernd gets in, that way I can see without stretching my neck and my posture will not be thwarted.

Bob, I've been suffering from Santos withdrawal for awhile now.
So it's great to see you coming back to display your skills & work here with us again!

Bob, looking out the window at the trees with leaves still clinging aboard (mostly oak, but a couple of birches as well) and the white gifts from above gradually falling from the evergreens after last night's festivities, this sounds like a fine idea. I'm in!

Thanks guys, all of you, I appreciate your support.

I am not going to build a model of THIS springhouse, this is just a typical one and I
will only borrow ideas from it.



I do not intend to include an interior which is not the usual for me. There is only one small
window and making a removable roof just does not fit my plans for this build. However, I
drew this quick cross-section of a springhouse to give you an idea of what goes on here.




More later,
Bob

Is that an Eric Sloane painting? That will be a neat project, Bob.

Bill, Yes, it's a Sloan. I have all his books, some of my favorites. My springhouse will look a
bit different, I like brown stone which we have a lot of here.

Bob,

It is great to see you starting a new project. Can't wait to see how it turns out... and of course what techniques you will be sharing.

Mike and Pete, thanks for your input.

Here are the pieces for the four walls cut from 1/2 inch thick balsa foam.



And here they are glued together. Since I will not be including an interior I
strengthened the corners with pieces of 1/2 inch square basswood.



Bob

BoI, until you mentioned your Spring House, I had never given them much thought. Then right after your post, I came on an old book on the early farm structures found in a rural section of S.E. Pennsylvania and there was an entire chapter on Spring Houses of many different designs.

So many great structures we could model are pictures in this 'book'.
