I looked back at my build and found that I had had the same problem Bob, took a bit of sanding. You're doing great so keep the pictures coming.
I love photo's, don't we all.

Found that I had doubled up on the corner trim for the rear upper wall.  It was a semi-simple matter of removing the trim off the flat section.  While that was drying, I looked at a section of roof as to how it is going to fit.  Trying to get the slot lined up and at the same time working the roof around a dormer was a pain.  Doable, but a pain.  But then it wouldn't fit.  Seems as something is off.  Then it was a matter of making a decision as to which side was off and make corrections all the while paying attention to the slot for the short side wall.  I think I'll finish installing the roof before I glue it to the foundation.  The same issue arose on the other side. 


While I was futzing with the roof pieces, I managed to finish the wrap around dock.  I needed to add the 2x12 angled board as it will have a 4x4 going through the end of it.  I hope.

Nice colour variations in the decking, Bob.

I like the piece at 45 degrees at the corner - a nice feature the looks very flash.

Cheers, Mark.

Before I could button this up, I needed to add some view block walls as the sliding doors are glued open.  Then the walls and the foundation were permanently mated.

I drilled out 4" diameter holes for the support posts.  Found that I need to start with half size, then 2/3rds, before getting to 4"  Then it was a matter of using a square file to get the holes fit for a 4x4.

I installed the two main roof cards and worked on the small dormer.  The slots, like the ones on the other side, were off a bit.  That and the tiny sidewall pieces had no tab to fit in the slots.  If I wasn't careful, they could fall inwards, where they would be a royal pain to get out again.  In fact these pieces had two boards removed to fit under the rood.  So, I just covered the slots with scrap note card bits and called it good.

All of the roof pieces have been added.  There is a tower that fits over the junction of the higher and lower roof sections that will be added after the roofing has been installed.  It'll just be easier that way. 

I have reconsidered my roof covering choices.  The provided tar paper will be used for the lower roof pitches, such as the left hand roofs.  I have some black three-tab shingles coming in and those will go on the main roof and connecting sections.  The kit came with some paper self-adhesive wood shingles that I won't use.  The dock roof sections will be metal along with the center tower.
While waiting for the roof shingles, I can attack the dock roof and and a tar paper covered shed for the back.  Good idea Jim Mooney.

Looking really good, Bob.

Love the extra effort to get such beautiful square holes for the posts.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks all.

I realized that I needed to roof the main sections before I could do the dock roof.  Mainly based on perceived fragility of the dock roof system.  I am going to do the roof in metal and wanted to use thin plastic for the roof deck.  So I did a bit of experimentation on adhesives for the same.  I chose Deluxe suoer 'phatic, medium super glue, and Aleenes Tacky Glue.  I added some cardboard to the mix as a control sample.  To my surprise, all worked as needed.  I dislike any super glues as we don't play well together. 


I decided to go ahead and roof the left side roof sections using the provided self-adhering material.  I had spray painted with a black primer which worked fairly well.  With the drawn lines, I was able to keep each row fairly straight.  Then I turned my attention to the upcoming three tab installation.  But . . . . the three tab has a 1/16" spacing and I had marked the main roof sections for the tar paper.  I tried to add additional lines, but it just won't work having already been installed.  So, back to original plan - rolled roofing.
