Following along and looking forward to your build as I've yet to attempt a scratchbuild. 👍🏻

thanks guys.
    Squaring up the outer walls of the main building.  I will then slide into place the upper rear facing wall.  Started working on the over-hang portion of the structure.  the walls are distressed with a little steel brush in the direction of the clapboard grain,,, stained with the Dr. Ben's Driftwood- 2 coats- then I put the nail holes in and lift some boards, then I apply the Pan Pastel over the wall with a stiff brush. the little gable wall in the photo is stained but not chalked, to show the difference....
     Next step is to cut out the little gable wall section next to the loading dock.... I think I may eliminate the rear-facing door on this section to make more room for things on the small loading dock-
thanks for following!

not much to report,
   finished the wood base, cut out some taskboard strips that will be the concrete retaining wall in the pit. None of the structures sub-assemblies are glued to the building yet, just placed together to get an idea of placemnet.....

Not much bench time these past couple of weeks,
Managed to get this little section built.  Using Campbell's shingles is a bit tedious but I really like them.

Bob,
 As old as the campbell's shingles are they still look pretty good when painted, and weathered. I always consider them when doing a build.

I agree Loren, they look much more in scale to me, and look really nice when peeled up and stained, weathered
