That little cabin just keeps on looking better.

The more one looks the nicer it looks

Todd


You think you can break that shack down,

and lay it out as a how it got to where it's at,

on paper, like the measurements for floors, walls, roof, deck and stuff,

maybe turn it into a simple structure build ?


I know I'm asking for much,

but it would be a neat little shack to start with for a 'how to'.

Excellent job Todd!

Great detail attention on the cabin and stuff!

It may be an oldie to you, but I don't recall seeing it before ?

Anyway, great job on it, and I can't wait to see more!!!

Chris

Sweet Todd...

Every time I see those pics,

Especially that stack of wood !

I have to agree!

That is one of the best ground covers I've seen.

I love the porch posts myself !

Thanks guys, I am glad you enjoyed it.

Ken thanks for your kind words.  :)


As to sizes etc, I did this just out of my head.

It's not a very large building and I do most small stuff like that on a whim.


Side walls are 4" long, Gables are 2" long, Porch floor was I believe 6 scale feet wide.

Roof pitch approx 6/12 but less with porch roof addition.  This ends up around 4/12.

2 windows, one door (which I would make a tad larger next time )  :)

My question to you Todd is:

How you cut the wood that small ?


It even looks Great.
