Interesting as usual. What is that fancy tip on the glue bottle?

Oh a comment on the color, I'd go with

Thanks Kevin, George, Frank and Philip.

Frank- The tip came with the bottle. Several vendors on-line. Google "fine tip applicator".

Looks great, Carl.

I prefer white for under the roof. Apparently whoever painted the rebuilt depot in Marlinton WV agrees: https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-restored-co-railroad-depot-and-bunkhouse-marlinton-west-virginia-73080516.html

Carl nice work on the trusses.

You should give a class on wiring lights?

Looking great, Carl.

I hope you've got z-nails in those trusses.

I suspect white would be most typical for soffits.

Cheers, Mark.

Thank you Mike, Jerry and Mark!

Mike- I also have that photo and it seems they changed their entire window frames to white as well.

Jerry- Would you pay for a class on lighting?

Mark- No Z nails, just Aleene's Tacky glue!. I guess painting the soffit white is on my to do list.

Carl, I'm just catching up again with what you've been doing here.
Your roof trusses look very sturdy, and pleasing to the eye.
I'm always amazed by how you & I go about lighting our structures in completely different ways.
The both seem to work just fine, just different from each other.
Keep up the great work!

Jim and Greg, thank you.

Greg- You gave me the push I needed to start lighting, and now look what you've done!

Jerry- Don't worry, you can ask me a lighting question any time for free! (Only one per week allowed)

Carl,

I would pay for a course on lighting. A lot to absorb in these pages, so I will come back at a later date to complete this online instruction. I am still working on home projects that need my attention before the cold weather begins.

Rich- I'll be glad to answer any questions on lighting or any other aspect of my work. No charge! Just a little fun I was having with Jerry.

As far as the home projects- maybe it's time to leave some for next year!
