Knowing your work I thought the first photo I was the model until I noticed the surrounding area. 

Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

 

How do you pick your subjects?

Both roof sections are finished.

The lower areas of the building are painted.

Starting to fit the siding on.

Once the glue has dried on the siding, the window openings are cut out.

Finished the building today.
Wasn't able to get lettering exactly the same as the real building so I fudged on that a little.
