Yes sir James makes me feel like doing some ice fishing.Oooo man I need some steak n eggs! Zing it with some Tobasco sauce! 30 degrees this morning....sigh. Spring hasn't quite realized it's spring yet.
I think I could take what I see at least one of two ways.Terry .... You are very wise not to make a purchase based on what you described.
Yes, in this case I painted all of the foundation walls with Krylon Gray Primer from the rattle can. Then I went over them with at least six different shades of brown and dark red with a brush, randomly painting individual rocks. I normally always use gray on rock walls as they usually represent older foundations/structures. If they were newer such as retaining walls, I would use concrete or aged concrete as a base.Willie: Thanks for the tip. While the basement is fairly temperature stable, I hadn't considered expansion of the wood underneath the foam. I like your newest structure. When you paint brick\rock work how do you get the mortar between the bricks right? Paint it first then the bricks and rocks a little more individually?
Flip: There was something about the mid-century Empire Builder that appealed to me, and when I looked into that railroad and saw the route through the Glacier National Park, it liked it even more. One of my bucket list items is to take the Amtrak Empire Builder through what remains of that route. It may never happen, but a guys gotta have a dream.....
Willie-Does it aggravate you when you spend a lot of time and effort on a detail that can barely be seen when a project is completed?Barely visible in this photo is the trim on the eaves that I also painstakingly did. I'll get a better shot of that today.
