Looks great John.  Great progress, and I really am liking the cordless shade idea.  I may have to give that a try.  Did you pick them up a the local Big Box store?

thanks...I ordered them online. We did them all over our home and I found them to be a little less expensive online...plus, Box stores only had a couple of colors. Endless options online. I'm really happy with them (in the windows too). No cords, they hold their position, etc.

Actually got some quality work in this weekend. Not picture-worthy but maybe "bump-worthy" ;D


I finished the lower fascia cutting and securing...and all the dusty loud "layout-tuning" that goes with it. One large step closer to doing some scenery work! I've really got to get with the backdrop guy before I go much further

Little bit of terrain shaping and a whole lot of thinking today...Don't want to get too far ahead of the backdrop guy!

John,
 Looking good, that one outside spur is going to be a hell of a surprise for some engineer...

Great to see you back at the modeling.  All that thinking and planning is going to pay off in the end product.

Loren, you're right. Not sure what I'm going to do with that...I just wanted some sort of foreground trestle for scenic value. Maybe just a stubbed out deck next to a small structure. That steep downgrade will mostly be covered with downed lumber, stumps, trees, maybe some trash, etc...still thinking. ::)

John,

Looking good. I like the idea of the foreground track for some negative scenery options. It will look great.
