Nice job on the roof. We're so fortunate to have several good suppliers of shingles today.

Bob, thank you. The BEST shingles have definitely become one of my go-to products now. I also like the historical nature of their kits, which are based on prototypes.

Mike, you need to be more specific about the music you're listening to. It might be a modeling tip for making good looking roofs.

George, thank you.

Half the blues songs written mention trains, so maybe thatís the secret.

Hi Mike. the shingles look fabulous. They always do so much enhance the look of any timber building.
Here's some music while you do the other half.

I agree with all before me Mike. Great looking job with your roofing material. But, for me it's Country Music or everything stops.

Thank you, Rob. Iíll be sure to listen to it. Back in the 70ís I picked up ď Fleetwood Mac in ChicagoĒ which I played a lot. Youíve reminded me I have it. Iíll have to pull it off my shelf of vinyl and give it a listen once more.

Thank you, Louis.

I spent many happy hours in my best buddyís basement assembling models for his layout and listening to the new country station. I got into the early stuff such as the Carter Family. I have about every song that Hank Williams recorded on vinyl and recently arranged a fingerpicking accompaniment to ďMind Your Own BusinessĒ. I saw the museum and Hall of Fame three years ago with that best buddy, who now lives in Nashville.

Mike great looking roof. That's a lot of area to cover. Nice job on the random look; it's music-to-my-ears.

Iíve completed several important but tedious steps: glazing the windows, shingling the roof, and carving a plaster ďstoneĒ foundation.





The chimney is a Tichy part, painted burnt sienna, washed with a dilute Bragdon gray powder, and wiped clean to leave mortar.

Iím really happy with the BEST shingles. Iíll be using them again.

The foundation will not be visible on the front and trackside so the foundation does not go all around.

With glazing complete Iíve started installing windows and doors. Meanwhile Iíll be working on steps, porches and a trackside platform.

Mike

it's looking good Mike. The chimney in particular. did you add curtains before installing the windows? What material did you carve your stones into?
