Antiseanna Pants Co.
« on: April 25, 2016, 03:38:47 AM »
 George's inspiration for the name of this building came from an old Frank Ellison book who made one for his Delta Lines RR. See the first photo.
The second photo was taken with my phone from page 70 of the FSM Thread. This black and white reference photo will help lay the windows out.
Will start cutting the wall out this week.

Sweet! Will follow along!  It looks like the wall on the left is angled out...not at a 45 degree angle....is that correct?

 Will start with a piece of 6" tall Northeastern aged 1/16 " clapboard siding , then draw lines on the back of the front wall piece to add a pencil grid. This will help space out the planned window openings. The added pencil grid matches the cutting matte squares. The total size of the front wall section for this build will be 6 " tall by 8 1/2 " long.

Don Tichy probably made a boat payment with my project :-) :-)  Glazing that many windows is a pain!

Andy,
 Wondering where all the retirement $ was being spent on. Too bad the gravel delivery costs were too high, you could have purchased some needed supplies. Spouse wants to replacement a few windows here, advised have plenty of them available....

Dave,
I remember your build, did post on that thread, those New England structures have a lot of character ! Well done....
If Tichy goes public, hold off on the all window and other item purchases until after the IPO, so the stock will climb higher....

 Ready to lay out the windows on the first and second floors. Let's start on the left side of the wall and will work across it. This first opening on each floor will set the height of the rows to be cut out. That is how the 3rd floor was done.  George used his metal enginehouse windows on his build, so will use something similar sold by Tichy.

 Using a new sharp X-acto # 11 blade.....here's a quick view of the openings that were cut out for the 3rd floor windows.  The 2 end windows are cut out first, then a pencil line is drawn on the back of the wall to show the top and bottom of the window openings. All cuts are first from the back of the wall, then the openings are trimmed from the front with a steel ruler for a tight fight. Yes, a sharp drill helps remove much of the wood material from each cut.
