That's a big one. Like a farm house doll house. Nice job. It will take a lot to fill it up.

David, Don't think you will get any complaints. I like the framing which is close to barn structure, I might have added a barn door. LOL!

Your barn really takes me back ….. !
I made one for my kids when they were little, many years ago!
I used hardboard for the top because I hinged at the roof center and it would have been a to heavy made out of wood.
It had working doors and Plexiglas windows.

The color, windows, door, and roof line brought back many memories.
Nice project, thanks for the memories!

Nicely done and they are right about the barn doors.

A simple way to make the roller door look right is to use plastic report binder strip for the sliding track. Just size the door to fit in the top and then a channel to hold the base in place. Waxing with an old candle rubbed in helps them to "roll" easily too.
t





The strips are available in places like Office max etc. You might have to call them report covers to the store people.
Hope this helps and please re-post the changes, thanks.

Oh, the shelf was made 30+ years ago and hangs in my shop, so the dust is free!
