    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.

    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 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!

    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... P1000081.JPG P1000141.JPG P1000158.JPG

    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 corn, painted individually (in N scale no less), boggles the mind! Nice work!!
