Loft Barn

First I built a LAZERkit Xpress, HO loft barn kit from American Model Builders Inc.  Then I scratch built a small house and added to one side of the barn, covering up one large sliding door location. I replaced the man door below the loft, with the large sliding door and used the man door on a scratch built outhouse. A pile of chopped fire wood was added to the end of the house. A piece of quilt batting was spray painted yellow and put in the loft, to simulate straw.  As this sliding door was left open, a post and beam was added to the interior for visual effect. The structures were painted and weathered.  A wagon, fence, junk and other details complete the scene.
