Thanks! I have to find out specifically when it was razed. It would be nice to know and the model for the visitor's center should have some kind of plaque or information.
Exercise day means short work session, but... it was fulfilling. I'm putting the roofing felt on the building (actually black construction paper). And two things really helped. I bought those good quality pinking shears at Michael's to make the saw-tooth flashing, and I now am the proud owner of an 8" Hold-n-Fold from the Small Tool Shop. I was able to apply really spiffy folds to the construction paper so the flashing fit nicely into the roof creases.
Here's a piece cut, and folded ready for installation. I'm using a combination of 3M spray adhesive for the bigger pieces, and the MicroMark PSA on the smaller pieces.
Here's that piece installed. Notice how cool the flashing (pinking shears cuts) looks. When the shingles are in place, all you'll see is the flashing extending up.
The roofing felt neatly covers all the gaps and ugly joints between parts and provides a great surface for the Rusty Stumps Victorian Shingles.
I was even able to put the flashing edge on the clerestory roof.
And here's an overview of the entire right side which is done. Tomorrow, I'll finish the roofing felt and then start shingling. That will take much longer, but will really make this building pop. If there are any gaps in the shingles all you'll see is "tar paper" underneath. Very prototypical.
I can almost smell the Bourbon...I have to start thinking about the site preparation and how I want to landscape this. There's a picket fence in front of the kitchen in the old photo. There's also that shed roof with a railroad track running under it. I haven't decided what I'm going to do about that yet. I was having the loading and unloading in the back.
