      I painted the inside of the bottom and glued and pinned it in place.

      The loading dock/Side sidewalk

      I want a loading dock in the front that leads to a sidewalk around the side, this dock will hold a few gas/oxygen bottles.

      I will be using redwood lumber. I cut all my lumber on a table saw.

      I start with a larger piece as the beam, two in the front to hold the joist., then nail the floorboards to the joist.

      The floorboards are being nailed on

      Using a wire brush mounted on a cordless drill, wire brush the redwood boards, giving them extreme weathering features.

      The variety of textures and colors is so typical of your builds and is just great. Nice job!

      Dennis what technique are you using for your chipped paint. If you said I missed it. It looks very good. A lot like the hairspray technique

      Devon , Easy, the doors are 3D printed in white

      spray painted in green

      wire brushed with Brass brush in a dremel slow speed

      2-3 coats of light  brown, watered down, washed on with paint brush, set a few minutes

      then rubbed down with paper towel.

      Dennis, I agree with Devon, the doors look very realistic.  Your painting technique gives a lot of depth to the layers of paint.  Great job.

      Thanks Dan, Brand new paint jobs are so easy, compared to old looking, but surprisingly this was quite simple, I had never done this type before.

      My chimney needed to be made smaller, it is not easy to cut the parts down SAFELY. I used my table saw with a sled, set for 45 degrees cut, with a special hold down to

      hold down the part safely, then sliding through the blade. 

      The finished chimney can be viewed in the finished models

      Here is the rafters for the lean to shed. I cut them out of acrylic 1/16" thick, with the perlins out of 1/8". I notched the rafter to accept the perlin with

      a locked in feature. The complete rafter display uses no glue, the joints fit quite snugly.

      The next picture shows what I use sometimes for my roof. I either use a 20Gage carbon steel or a thin aluminum. I use a foof that will turn the water regardless

      how well the roofing (shingles or tarpaper ect) turns the water. This one is the 20 gage steel, I know most people do not have access to equipment to do this procedure.

      This works very well for long lasting roofing systems that will endure all extremes of weathers.

      Nice looking roof structure, Dennis.  Do you use a laser or CNC to cut the acrylic?

      The bolt in the center will hold the roof down, the building does not show the board yet, I will fasten a board something like a ceiling, the front doors open

      so i can put my hand inside to access the wingnut holding the roof on.
