    There will be a group of buildings to make the ranch scene.
    This will start with the family stone house.
    I decided on a ranch as we need the beef without worrying about mad cow disaster.

    Chris, the cattle will be LPBs too. "Little plastic beef" Low in cholesterol but a bit hard to digest.
    The walls and windows are in place. Next comes the stone work. This will take some time.

    Wow Robin. I've been off the computer for a couple of days so my daughter could do college papers, and I come back and you've finished the mine and gone on to a ranch!

    Dick, it isn't siding just pencil lines every 1/8th inch on cerealboard to help me place the rocks.
    shaygetz the stone work will be similar to the machinery warehouse but I am going to try to make it look somewhat different if I can. It is taking my time to place the rocks. Not even halfway yet.

    OK you task masters. Once the basic blocks are in place I need to add mortar. Don't quite know how I will go about doing that yet. Then comes the painting.

    You turn your back for just a moment ... and he finishes a complete factory complex, adds a source for fuel and then starts on feeding the population. I get exhausted just trying to keep up with the threads. :D :D :D :) :)

    Great work Robin. I have another bookmark to add to the "reference list"

    :) :) :)

    Robin, what is the size of the blocks? Are you making them uniform or varying the lengths?:) :)
