David,

Apparently I made up a word, misspelled it, and used it wrong. Let's do this: wonkyness. I like the somewhat unusual roof design. It's actually similar to one on the website that Bill Gill posted a link to, rather than the usual hemisphere or shallow cone.

If it's any consolation, I have seen the word wonkyness in more than one publication over the years'...

Mike,
Wonkyness maybe meaning unusual sure fits the silo design. I like the word and appreciate your comments. At first I didn't like the silo design, however I'm beginning to get attached to the wonky silo.
Thanks, Mike

Finally completed the Palmer Feed and Grain building. Thanks again Frank for the crackle siding, nail holes, rust method ideas and all the help over the last six years.
It was a fun build!











Next building is in the (how to proceed) thought process stage.

David,

There are so many aspects I like about your model, such as the architecture, crazed paint, metal silo, the way the roof is cut out for the silo, the recessed loading dock, rusty metal roof, signs, and on and on.

Frank is a great example to us all.

I can hardly wait for your next building.

Mike

Brilliant structure Dave. I love all the weathering and the cracked paint effect is excellent. Nice job on the silo.
I've certainly learned some new techniques I will be trying out. Thanks for doing a great SBS. I'm looking forward to the next structure.


Regards Rob

My current build.
