Hopefully this summer we will building a new home with a nice big basement to put a train layout in.
We have an architect drawing up the plans and I decided to build a model of what the house will look like.
My layout will be set in the late 40's so doors, windows, roof and siding reflect that time era on the model.

Here are some of the pieces of the house that are ready for the final finishes to be applied.
The porch post are already finished.

These are the sheets that I printed out for the siding and the roof on the model.
The actual house will have a siding that is a darker sage green color and it will have a metal roof.

Here is the finished model.

I was thinking the same thing Kenny. Ray, are sure you don't want to build the porch onto the garage area, and install the garage doors on the house area?  :smilewink:

I think Ray will have or has a nice sized pole building / garage for the tractor stuff. I don't know if they are building on the same property or not?

 

Ray, house looks awesome and is exactly what my wife and I have talked about having at some point.

The garage on the house is just for Marie to park her car in.

We will be building on the property that we bought in southern Indiana.

There was a house on the property.   

It was really bad and had been vandalized so we had it torn down.

However the garage next to the house is a good solid structure so we kept it and that will be the garage for the house.

 

There is a 40x60 pole barn for me to work in with an upper loft for storing equipment on.

 

Here are some photos of what the property looks like now.

You can see part of the house garage behind the dumpster in one photo and the pole barn in background of the other photo.

I really admire your work. The house looks great and I too enjoy homes from that era. Now that I think of it, why not just build two and send me one?  :D 

PS.

I like oak trim.

After remembering there is already an existing two stall garage, and a 40x60 shed, I disagree with previous posters who said you should build the attached garage bigger.

I think it should be lots bigger. 30x40, if I have to throw numbers around.

Just trying to help.

Okay! You will park out back and trudge through the snow in below zero temps to get to your vehicle!

Man, that's a bleak picture. 

He'll just have to spend more time on the tractor.  :dancingbanana:

You never have a garage big enough.  I built a 24 X 32 and everybody though "Why do you need a garage that big?".  Well guess what.  I wish I had another 30 foot for tractor storage and heated work shop.  When I built it I was planing on doing wood working in another building that had heat in it.  Things change and not to much wood working now but trying to work on GT's.

Nice job on the model . :thumbs:

Just to put everyone's mind at ease,  the model only has a single car garage but the garage for the real house is wider than that with a carport on one side.

Here is a better photo of the garage.
