I think it looks better with the minimal striping as well.

Morning, all.


Dan, I hope you mother's situation improves.  Bob, congrats on the anniversary.  Here it's my last day off before "heck week".   I work Tuesday, have Wednesday off, but have a team meeting in the evening I have to go up for, then seven wonderful days in a row.   :P  At least the weekend shifts are only seven hours, not twelve.

Morning all.

Supposed to snow a bit today, we'll see how that goes.

Morning, all.

Three days off.   ;D  Might run a train or two today and hope to get back to the FSM build after cleaning up the work area after doing taxes Thursday.

Morning, all.

It's finally Iowa Caucus Day!  After today, no more political ads, phone calls/texts, or people coming to the door pushing their candidate.  Until fall.   :o   I'm off to work.

Remember to leave the roof strips slightly long on the back, or they won't touch the roof (I did this on a previous build and actually remembered to do it here.  I added black paper behind the windows so they can't be seen through.  Her's one installed/roofed dormer.  Three to go.  Then they need some trim put on...

The instructions then say to paint the roof, to match the main roof and add a tarpaper strip on the stop.  I just used tarpaper on the dormer roofs.  Here's the angle irons helping hold the roofs on the dormers.  I should get some small baggies to put the ballast I use for smaller roof weights.   ::)

Next up are the dormers.  You know they're futzy when they take up more than a whole column on the instructions.   :P The bottom edge of the front piece needs to be sanded to match the roof angle.  Then the side pieces put on to match, and then their tops sanded to match the dormer roof.  Only two of them came apart while sanding.  Put in the windows.  Glue on roof.

Thanks, guys.  Here's the building with the roof on.  Need to touch up the trim edges and get that dried glue glob off the roof.  :o

Morning, all.

I think there's some type of marmot living under our gazebo.  He will probably see his shadow today.  Restful Superbowl Sunday as my team isn't in it for the first time in a few years.
