Afternoon all,
 I finished up the warehouse last night. With the exception of the windows, chimneys, lamp shades, and cornice at the roof peak (copied from original casting), all is scratch built. The decorative lamp bracket was pretty easy to make from brass wire. The hoist is wood, with a brass bracket, and small slice of tubing, with brass spokes for the wheel. The biggest challenge was carving the corner support post. (took two tries). I weathered the shingles a little different this time. I used several different raw umber, and raw sienna Rembrandt chalks mixed in water, and applied as washes. Than finished up with Bragdons straight chalk. Now on to the storage shed....Thanks for taking a look.....
