After the success with a wooden structure I wanted to build a house board-by-board.
I used the plan of one of my Alpine Models cardboard kits for the dimensions of the building and decided on a false front saloon ca. 1880.
First I constructed a frame from strip wood
Than I glued stripwood onto the frame each board overlapping the other
Then I assembled the 4 walls, roof and porch
Painted, weathered and applied dry transfers
To show how I had build up the walls, the structure had to be removable, but then it lacked an interior. So I decided to include a counter and some tables, stove, chimney etc.
The saloon scored 93 points
