Started on the 2 entrances for goods today...the wearhouse is basicly a triangle...but with 5 sides.
The long frontage.. then a side entrance at each end..for goods in/out..theses are set at 35degrees roughly..backwards...
The rear of the building is 2 sides joining on to theses..
Well it makes sence to me.

Mike, I have followed you and your progress from the beginning. While I read your writings, I must confess that it is a speed read, so some details speed right by me. Mostly I read the pictures as they tell a thousand words. I think we have the same type of foam board here. Rather inexpensive too. Do you layout and scribe each course of brickwork ? In the case of the arches and sills, are they applied pieces ?

Hi !! And thanks..
Yes..each one is drawn out..scribed in..
The layers of bricks are extra sheets glued on..ie the pillers are 3 x the thickness ect...it's a case of visualising it in your head ...

The foam board, is it surfaced in paper? If so, what sort of protections do you provide so these structures can be left outside in the elements?

Mike I have always admired your and Ge_riks Foamboard efforts. Thus far I have been unable to source any except the Card Covered Stuff, useless or near useless outside even though I have 1 Building left over fro the Ruschbahn that was Card covered stuff that did appear to last quite well even to this day but is now failing. I have used HIPS quite extensively but that suffers in full Sun which a lot of my buildings have to cope with. I believe that you use PVC Foamboard, before I make a BIG purchase do you believe this to be the stuff that you use please?
