     I enjoy that both your modeling and the 1:1 work on your own home follow the same pattern.  Given the demand on materials around the planet, there needs to be more escape from landfill construction.

     My wife has calls me a pack-rat, but last summer when I built her a gazebo the only expenses were for the fasteners, roof, and wood stain.  All the rest came from a deck my neighbor tore down about 6 years ago and I lovingly pulled nails, power washed, and stacked for a "some time, maybe project".   The piece came with a rustic feel that cannot come from new wood.

Hi everybody thank you for your interest.
Russ get cutting , do you have a project in mind?
Hi Ray, Barney, Jerry, and Lawton good to hear from you all.
Yes Lawton the benefits of recycling timber or lumber are huge. The cost of these commodities is going through the roof and if you know how to work this material you can find old exotic wood that is looked on by most people as rubbish.
Yes, this is a great project and is part of the original board with the swamp and the signal story house the finished size will be decided later. I have included a photo of how the different parts of the building can be removed and used as separate buildings in this case the kitchen can also be used as a shack.
With the series of photos that I have just posted, there was one of the interior of a rough building with a sand floor this is a recent photo and has been closed to visitors for 2 years , all the original fittings have been removed.The location is the Cape York peninsular the pointed bit of north Australia near Asia ,a truly vast unpopulated wilderness that is part of the national estate of the indigenous population of Australia. If you wanted to escape with a good friend an option.
Cheers.

Beautiful! I love the variety of "textures"(wood, metal, lattice, etc) in this single structure. Every side is different!

Lattice is difficult to do on a model, yours has the feel of a DIY project and not something picked up on a Saturday at the local big box lumber yard.

BTW, when the Friends of the East Broad Top RR replaced the car shop doors 5 years ago some of the 90+ year old material found its way to my shop and I made 2 picture frames from it and matted photos from when the RR was in operation to be auctioned at the annual reunion.

Morning all hoping you are in all the best of health wherever you are?
Moving along.
My little real estate earner is being added to.
The sun shades have been added as also the 2 staircases. Really to the actual building, there has to be added the roof vent and some guttering maybe also some door hardware then it is onto the landscaping.
All the best Kim.

Don't forget to add an outdoor shower under the house.  They are features in many of the beach houses here in Virginia to clean up after a day at the beach.  Another excuse to make some lattice work.  Then a clothes line under there as well.
