Thanks Bill and Greg!

I saved the lighting for almost last.  After it was installed and working I put the roofs back in place (they're removable) and finished off the remaining details such as the weather vane and windows.  Now for the final pictures of the finished structure.
















John will have to figure out what to do with that long wire sticking out of his structure.   ;D

Here endeth the Build Challenge portion of this Build Thread!

To be continued however, as I plan on building the rest of the Cundy Harbor complex.  Next up will be the Bait Boat (cuz I needed something simple after this one!).

Thanks for following along!

Terrific build Bob and I appreciate the steps you took to document for us. I am doing this build as well at a snails pace, work and all the other responsibilities get in the way. I wanted to ask what material did you use for the capula roofing and the sides?
Thanks
Lynn

Hi Lynn, 

For the shingles I substituted some Bar Mills laser cut shingles I had stashed away in a drawer.  They were already a nice, weathered light gray color and I figured they'd look better than the ones that came with the kit.  They were sold in a separate package and I picked them up in a hobby shop one day when they were on sale.  It looks like they still offer them on their website: Bark Brown/Weathered Gray Shingles

I know what you mean about a snails pace and work interfering with things.   ;)

Thanks for the nice comments!  :D

Hi Bob , thanks for the reply , kind of figured it was other than the shingles that came in the kit . I used the campbells shingles that come in the roll but will do something different for the capula roof. Keep up the nice modeling.

Here's what I've done today...I rebuilt a waterfront dock that doesn't take up as much room in either direction. I purposely made the bracing seemingly random (inspired by my visit to Ketchikan, Alaska last year). This allowed the Dock House to settle right in between a rock and a hard place. The paper model is a full-size cutout of the Boat House shown under construction in this thread (I imagine the real one will be elevated slightly more). What you can't see is my Seaport Model Works Capt. Hook's Lobster(unbuilt), which I plan to place right along the front edge of the layout with the stenciled sign facing the viewer. This will create a tight little dead end inlet full of waterfront coolness courtesy of Bob's builds. Hope that explanation was clear.
I missed this, nice job on the build and looks situated perfect.
