That House really came out nice. I like the changes to the porch too.

Nice night scene, Greg. I agree with Mike, the porch roof looks better lower than it would right below the windows.
You just keep steppin' up the looks of the farmhouse.

Thanks! Mike & Kevin.
I'm certain that Chester would welcome you both, to come for a sit on his porch swing anytime you want!

Greg,
Wonderful work on the barn and the house! The instructions and your art style helps us all to model a little better.
This is going to be a fantastic diorama...can't wait to see the finished product.

I can't wait to see this project finished as well!
You certainly get lots of modelling pleasure with this kit.

Looking fantastic, Greg!

A clever little tip with the wire in the ends of the posts - I will remember that.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks! Mark & Jeff, for your comments.

Hi everyone, well back home from the cottage once again, and that means a little more progress with this build.
Today I'll show you how to build 2 little structures that will be attached to the farmhouse.
In your kit you will find 2 little plastic bags labeled, farmhouse shed walls & farmhouse shop walls.





This is how these walls look fresh out of the bag.





You will also need the Fig.25 thru Fig. 27 as a guide to assist with their construction.
I began with adding nail holes to my walls, using a pounce wheel spaced in about 2 foot intervals.





I then added all of the 1/8" sq. bracing to the backs of these walls.
I discovered that some of the walls bracing partially covered some of the window openings.
So I found other methods to brace my walls so that would not happen.





I then spray painted all of my walls with flat white paint.





I then added the 1/16" sq. corner post to the larger shop walls and I also added some 2x8 corner pieces to the smaller shed.
These sheds are supposed to be used in 2 different locations on this farmhouse.
I however plan on turning this workshop & shed into one combined structure used as a summer kitchen with a small back porch instead.
So I glued my 2 buildings together to start off with.




These sheds now a summer kitchen have their own roof cards that you have to cut out.





However before the roof goes on you must add some 3x12 trim/soffit to the larger building right on top of the walls as shown below.
I also glued into place the smaller shed roof so that my larger roof soffit would go right over where the 2 walls meet.





In your kit you will find a sheet of paper that is used for the rolled roofing.





The instructions suggest applying the rolled roofing before painting it.
I decided to give my rolled roofing paper a coat of paint before applying it.
I ended up painting it again when it was all finished again anyway.





I had to cut my larger roof panel down a little bit to accommodate the changes I was making by joining the 2 structures.
I added a small porch off the backdoor, to give Chester's farmhouse a different look from the kit's version.
I like to do that kind of thing anyway!
I didn't cover that part of my build, because it's not really part of this kit's design.
I then attached my summer kitchen to the back wall of the farmhouse.
This summer kitchen area is 1/2" an inch higher than the front of the farmhouse.
It will get blended in better as the scenery starts to take shape.





Here's another view of the summer kitchen.
I left the porch light on for you.





And here is a first look at the farmhouse & the barn together as they will appear on the diorama.





That's all I have for now.
Thanks for looking!

Greg
