The Shed Out Back

Just a quick one today.  Last night I finished building our shed as part of my project to build my real life home in 28mm.  I actually have two smaller sheds out back but decided to only build one larger one for the model.  I think it turned out pretty good!
The model is built from foamcore board.  In fact, you can see it hovering in the background of the pictures from my last post...  The roof is corrugated cardboard from some packing material I got in the mail.  The ridge cap is card stock.  I covered the foamcore walls with wood strips made from Popsicle sticks and other strips of wood.  The doors are made from card strips glued to look like wood planking.
I will paint it to match our sheds at home but I think it looks pretty good just like this!  Fun and simple to build!

  4. Thank you, gentlemen. Work on the house progresses. I'll keep posting as the work goes forward. Feel free to drop in anytime you're in Ohio!
    BTW, I'm going to be in Tenby, Wales around the weekend of September 11 for another Ironman race I'm doing. Anyone live near there?
