    Scratchbuilt my first building! an office for my freight company.....just a small house on a concrete pad, with a large door in back for receiving ....made it all from sheet balsa, the siding is strips of cardstock glued to the side, the roofing material is painted sandpaper.......I did buy the door and windows from tichy trains, but the rest is all designed and built by me, its a real simple structure, but its my first one, and I think it turned out well, just needs some detailing........once again I apologize for the poor quality of the pics....

    That looks good! Now you've done it! You've likely gone and addicted yourself to scratchbuilding! Usually it only takes one. :)
