The pub is more or less finished now, so work has turned to the stone built house next door. In addition, I have found a suitable DPM building (purchased secondhand for 50p a few years back!) to make up the full street frontage...



Back of the pub looks like this....



I ended up using an embossed tile plastic sheet, painted black, for the roof material on the pub, as the shingles looked a bit of a headache to reproduce.

Now that this has proved that the "log" style construction of the ground floor can be reproduced reasonably well (albeit simplified), a couple of other prototypes of buildings lend themselves for use elsewhere on the layout.
The "Colonial Complex" in York, Pennsylvania, has a complete house in that style that sits immediately bebund the pub and the Gates house, so thats an obvious one to put in a similar position on my layout!

Something resembling the Horatio Gates House has now been completed.......




I've simplified some of the details and shortened the brick annexe on the rear to fit the space available. Some of the stonework has been replaced with brick in the area of the annexe which isn't prototypical, but saved a couple of Ratio etched brass windowframes!
Can now get on with the pavements where this row sits, whilst thinking about what will fit the other remaining vacant spaces on the block.....
