Ok, so I had Stanley Stove kit from Bar Mills for a while now on the shelf. I originally bought it to use at some point as a semi-background structure- something to use as "filler". Because of this I never got too excited to build it. One day I was looking at it and thought to myself "what if I pulled the covered stairway forward the way George Sellios did in the Franklin Watchworks kit. Why stop there? Let me move the back addition to the side....make a tower for the roof....add a side building....front loading dock. When I looked at what I was doing, I figured that if I was going down the Franklin Watchworks road, I might as well keep going. So I took some card stock, shingled it up and made the little elevated room to the right. The dirt road is sandstone colored grout sprinkled onto wet brown paint. I still have some small final details to add such as power lines, but it is pretty much finished. You can see Old Man Skagnetti on the front dock. (extra credit if you know where I got the name from! ha ha).
