You know you're border line having a animal abuse charge filed against you.

Or at least harassment of a public officer .

AKA      Building inspector.

Create memories with photos to share at this FORUM of your work in progress. 

You've probably seen a framed one dollar bill posted at a mom & pop restaurant -- celebrating the first dollar made in their business. The equivalent image for train hobbyists is the initial track plan. Frame it and hang it in the Train Room as a historical reference and conversation starter.   Since many "first drafts" of a track plan are changed (often significantly) during the actual building phase, that initial document is fascinating and useful for explaining the evolution of your layout to visitors and hobby friends  -- somewhat like the BEFORE and AFTER pix of a a major makeover.

Carry on ...

Thanks Mike, Great idea! Just like the idea of a time capsule in the walls! I will now do both!

Well not much new, But I did get the last wall sided, the roofing finished, and all the outside trim up! So all I have to do is get the inspector out to sign off on the final!20180505_15362520180505_153639

Looks good and all ready for a nice train layout!

Maybe you should leave a box of these near the project? Don't want any problems or delays with the final inspection.

For the Inspector!

Thanks for all the kind words everyone! Next will be electrical, insulation, sheetrock, then some sort of floor covering! Then the fun will start with bench work!

I have a furnace in the garage, I can just open the door. To cool it just open windows, it doesn't really ever get that  hit here to me!

Great News and Congratulations!! Happy to hear the inspector must have been pleased. I always liked the inside work better than the outside and actually enjoy the wiring part. Good luck with the next phase!

Well everyone, I am getting closer, I got the outside all painted now I can move to the inside. Insulation and sheetrock, some more painting, then I can start on the bench work. I also got all the electrical done!20180514_13532320180520_16324020180520_163250

Thanks Lee, its getting there! I wasn't sure about the weather yesterday so I got a late start, and then worried about rain showers all day! But I made it.

Big Mike,

  Everthing is looking great, sorry I have not been around lately to chime in, getting the old house ready to sell is taking up a mess of my time.  

Great progress and feed that dog, he is fading away!
