The next project is going to be a home & barber shop combination.
Here is the base with front and rear sidewalls for the house glued in place.

It takes a lot of clamps and support blocks to make sure everything is tight and square.

All the sidewalls are finished.
The barber shop is the part in the front of the house with the flat top on the front wall.

I've decided to make the cornice piece for the top of the barber shop front wall instead of buying one.
I cut two strips of wood to the correct size and I'll use the tips off these clothespins for the trim pieces.

Here's how the cornice piece looks with the parts glued together.

This gives you an idea of how it will look on the building.

Next is making the front porch for the house.

With the porch mounted back on the building, I started fitting the pieces for the roof.
The edge of the porch roof is notched to fit with the roof on the house.

The roof over the barber shop has just a little bit of and angle on it instead of being totally flat.

Looking pretty good ray! I have to ask, what do you do with the buildings? Do you have them set up together? If so, I would love to see pictures of your town!

....where is the barbers pole?

That will get made up later on.

 

 I have to ask, what do you do with the buildings? Do you have them set up together? If so, I would love to see pictures of your town!

We are planing on making one last move after my wife retires then I can start to build a layout.

In the mean time, I'm working on the buildings to go on it.

Once again, very nice Ray. You're getting all the essential buildings done for "small town USA".

What are you missing? What's next? City hall? Police station?  Oh, I know.... Brothel!!!!!

Think of the wallpaper you could print out off the internet..... :D

The roof section for the house is finished.

All the buildings that I've built are made so the roof can be removed.
This is so I can later add lights to the inside.

119-1_zpsdee3cf7d.jpg


This roof is braced with wood supports.

The front porch is finished.
