Working on a small toolhouse that I got from Interaction Enterprises about a year ago.

A few years ago I built their large CPR #3 toolhouse, added an interior and lit it.

This one has no windows and only the double doors. I should be able to knock it off in a couple evenings work.

Even though it is a small kit I'm pretty impressed with the detail that was added to the structure, individual rafters and interior framing.

I started with staining all the walls in a pine stain from Testors model FX.

then I painted the exterior walls and trim with Ceramcoat Barn Red. This is my standard railroad structure color.
The trim is made of a thin resin board (also laser cut)

and the interior framing. This too is a resin board. I didn't paint the interior framing so I can see the contrast.

Thanks Guys. It is a pretty quick build.
I got the walls up

It's all tab and slot locating on the floor. I stained the floorboards with some of the pine stain I used on the walls.

Then I added the rafters and ridge board.

the two roof pieces are attached, I'm just waiting for the glue to dry before I start shingling.

I also constructed the two doors. They use these laser cut/engraved hinges and lock

Thanks Ted.
I finished the model this afternoon.

I added the shingles, using scotch brand double sided tape for adhesive. The kit comes with a very nice set of laser cut shingles.

The last two things to install were the smoke jack and the doors. I had to have the doors open of course since it would be a shame to cover all that detail.

The smokejack is a plastic piece with the exception of the flashing on the roof. it too is laser cut. I trimmed the shingles and glued it to the roof sheet.

Finally here it is on the layout beside the larger tool house. I just set it here for now. I have another area that I'd like to place it but it isn't sceniced yet.

Neat little building. Color looks right. That's a very railroady scene you've put together.
