Tom,

You can even reduce the footprint more by building against a wall as a facade or reducing the depth of the building by putting it against a wall.

Billy,

Some of the pictures I looked at showed the floor open. In the case of electric furnaces, everything appears to take place in inside a closed building. Blast furnaces are definitely more sexy than modern electric furnaces.

Again I would do like to say thank you all for the nice comments. I would now like you all to start building blast furnaces on your layouts.

It seems like they started being open at some point. I have seen some 1890s-1900s photos where they are closed. Then they suddenly seem to be open.

Blast furnaces are very sexy compared to a modern electric arc furnace. I couldn't have said it better myself! Being in the room with a massive thunderstorm is very exciting though. Granted, I unfortunately never got to visit a working blast furnace. That's one of my greatest regrets. Maybe some day I can accomplish it but I think it's a stretch. They demolished the last blast furnace in Youngstown recently. I think Gary, Indiana and Braddock, Pennsylvania are the only ones I know of.

I'm working on three blast furnaces on my layout! Just need to get that table built for them to sit on haha Mine are very different from this one though. They're an older style so a bit smaller with less structure up top. I can't wait to get them built!

Just want to say again, your work really stands out! This is an impressive structure.

Alan, no layout to build one on. Only layout currently is the Christmas tree layout. I do plan on building one, but no space for any steel mill operations. If by some fortunes, I would definitely do so. Until that day though, I'll have to settle for small room modeling.

P.S., did you say you were going to build steel Mills for everyone(just kidding)?
