Falmouth Freight House In Progress

This photo shows the Falmouth Freight House in-progress. I used a piece of scale lumber to do the ridge cap.  The shingles are laser cut maple with self stick adhesive, stained and painted to resemble cedar shakes.

Installing the shingles was a little trickier because I used purlins instead of a flat roof sheeting.

I had the roof removable, but that really wasn't necessary and it made the roof more difficult to build. I still need to add the doors, windows, platform along the tracks and some details.
