Who makes a nice farm house and barn?
American Model Builders.
The N Scale Barn & Outbuildings Laser Art Kit from Branchline Trains is a nice kit.
You can use just about any ranch style house with it.
Gold Rush Bay has at least two different barns that they digitally print that I really like. As for the farm house, I used the Bachmann pre-built farm house that I picked up at a train show for next to nothing...I just repainted it to get rid of the plastic shine.
That Bachmann house is neat. That plus a scratch built barn could save big dinero.
This is a pretty good deal for both a house and barn in 1 kit: https://www.ebay.com/itm/302007807799.
They have the same barn by itself for $15 and then get another house more to your taste if the one there is not what you had in mind. https://www.ebay.com/itm/291125377229
I've purchased several laser cut wood structures from that seller and they are nice kits plus free shipping.
I just picked up this house on ebay:
I have not built it yet, but it looks just like in the pictures. Nice quality.
I'm using a house from this company | eBay
and a Walthers barn, silo and windmill Walthers - Meadowhead Barn and Silo - Kit - 933-3892
Scatch built would look much better than any kit.
That, I would think, depends on the talent and ability of the builder.
The farm house I grew up in would be very easy. It was just the typical box with a high pitched roof. No windows on the roof.
I resemble that remark!
I want one of those Sears houses and don't even need it. A few family members worked for them for 30 years or so. Plus, they just look cool!
Hopefully some figures around the buildings will be coming .
These are pics of what I did with the American Models house on a now defunct small layout. The cornfield is across from the front door...
I think I bought one of the Sears houses also. Once I get back to rebuilding my town scene, I'll want a variety of houses.
Like this one:
(Yes, I bought it. I hope I don't shoot my eye out.)
That is just beautiful
That corn, painted individually (in N scale no less), boggles the mind! Nice work!!
