That thar's some FOL I AGE alright...
Here are the buildings attached:
Cool! Sure would be nice to have some lemonade on that porch and watch the trains roll by....
I would like to live there, with a barn for the railroad... :angel:
Nice so far - hope my module will shape up and look as good.
Wolfgang - we're starting to think about tearing down the shed in our back yard and putting up a larger "barn". We have the Fremont Subdivision of CSX just a few yards from the shed currently. For now we'll be content to sit on the deck on the the back of our house and watch trains go by.
i have that same house but it is still blue with the yellow windowframes
If the house was in Texas, it would have been painted white with bright blue trim, (so the cowboys could see it miles away.) It was always a real treat when they got to eat at "The Big House", instead of the Chuck Wagon, or Bunkhouse BBQ.
The house was usually built on high ground, and when the cowboys were to eat there, a smokey fire was built so the plume of smoke could guide them in off the range.
This practice died out during the war sometime, when things got 'citified'.
Just a tid bit of old Texas lore.
Here is the small barn after I spackled around the base.
Here it is after I finished painting, and adding the turf.
Looking good, especially the woods behind!
