I'll be watching too. I tried to find a buddy but nobody wanted to hold my hand.

This kit won't be on the website until the "kinks" are worked out.

I got the idea from this ugly old garage...

Dan,

Don't know how I missed this one but you can add me to the followers.

Great start and I approve of the colors.

I painted the walls yesterday after updating the thread and let them dry overnight.

I also painted the chimney casting with Rustoleum Cinnamon, which looks like the early orange brick.

This afternoon I drybrushed Americana Grey Sky over the walls to bring out the edges of the shingles.
