Slowly making progress on the house model.
Most of the side walls are on.

Sometimes setting pieces up and gluing them together can get complicated.
Here are the pieces to form the framework for the roof.

This is what it looks like without all the braces and clamps.

And how it looks setting on the house walls.

In the process of getting ready to move, my wife came across an old box of photos that we had forgotten that we even had.
These two old photos were inside.

These would have been take in the summer of 1940 when the two story addition was built on the back of the house.
If you look close, you can see that the logs on the addition have not been painted yet and the windows still have the new stickers on the glass.
You can see thru both windows on the ground floor so there aren't any inside walls put up yet.
The dirt is still piled up from digging out for the basement and has not been back filled in.

The car is a 1938 Ford woody wagon.
Back in the late 50's, that car sat out behind the barn when I was a kid and I use to play in it.
The wood was pretty much all rotted away by then.

These are some nice pics & adds so much to the history of your old home. I know it would be hard but have you thought about making a history packet to give to the new owners when it sells. They probably would love meeting you & hearing your stories.

Getting the roof sections fitted in place.
Starting with the roof on the main floor and the back addition.

Then I put the roof over the attic and the front door.

You need to include the Ford in your recreation. This is going to be nice.

Progressing slowly on the house.
The windows are fit into the roof section and it is ready for the final painting and to have the roof shingles put on.

Looks very nice Ray, an amazing number of angles, quite a puzzle to fit together.

The whole roof section is primed and the edge trim is painted yellow.

37_zps74249438.jpg


I printed sheets of "roof shingles" off the internet.
These are cut to fit and glued onto the roof.

38_zps95dd530c.jpg


The roof shingles are all glued on and the cedar shingle siding is put on the side walls of the peak ends and the dormers.
