Thanks Everyone!

I made a bit more progress on the main structure over the last couple days.


I added all the shingles. I substituted the Campbell's that came with the kit for these from Bar Mills.


I added the trusses under the overhang.


I used chalks to weather the shingles.






Next step was adding the doors. These are made with scribed siding and a few pieces of scale lumber.


Back door..


Gluing the truss supports in place. This was pretty tedious and difficult to get straight. At first they were too tall so I took a little off, then they were too short so I used this business card to bring them to the right height while they dried.


Both in place. I did break the rear one off after taking this picture.


The cast finial post caps.


Front sign is added and I added the metal track for the door. It was made with 2 pieces of scale 2x6 glued to make a "L" then I sprayed them black and weathered with chalks.


Everything started to get too fragile so I thought it was a good time to glue the building down. I added a few simple details right inside the front door to give the illusion of a detailed interior.


After knocking the rear support off a few times I decided to remove it all together until I could get the rest of the porch and stairs completed.

That's all for now. Next step will be adding the stairs, railings and re-gluing that rear support for the last time hopefully.

Thanks for following along.
