Just a tip for ya. I go to the hardware store and get those counter top samples, they're free and thin and can be used for a tile or marble look on small stuff like you're doing. Don't take a whole stack of 'em at one time, they may catch on to ya. They think I've been remodeling my kitchen for a year now. yuk yuk

The strips of wood are glued to the outside edges of the porch roof and the header beams are glued to the underside of the roof.
The corner of the porch is notched out to fit the porch roof support column.
Here is the first porch support column.
And how it looks setting in place.
The other two corners are notched out on the porch.
The front of the building with all the porch columns in place.

Looking good. Are you going to try and weather the wood like the real one?

I'm going to try to weather the porch but I aven't done a lot of weathering yet so we'll see how it comes out.

That looks very nice Ray! Needs some grass growing around it to set it off, but that will come when you place it on the layout! Maybe you could make a small diorama to set the buildings on with grass/etc. to show them off?
