Before Basil Casabona really got going on Sheds #1 and #2 of the Roundhouse President Chuck Whitlock had spent time installing doors on the front and back of Shed #1. The screws that go in the miniature hinges are a real pain just ask him.

Windows for the West side of Roundhouse Shed #1
Basil Casabona keeps plugging away at finishing Shed #1 of the Club’s Roundhouse. Here you can see he has installed the windows on the west side of the Shed. Tough work ahead though – upper level windows at the front (tricky) and two lots of doors (very tricky).
More work on the Roundhouse
Club member Basil Casabona continues to apply his talents to finishing installing the windows and doors on shed #1 and #2 of the roundhouse. We agreed that working on the east side of shed #2 would “fool” the visitor coming into the layout into thinking a lot more windows and doors have been installed than is actually is the case.
As I indicated in a prior post I sloshed too much paint on the roundhouse when getting it ready for installation. So, before installation of each window – there are thee pieces to each – Basil has to “clean up” the window frame by removing the excess slosh. He also has to sand each edge of each piece of window to ensure that they all fit together. Click any photo to see full size.
Working on the Roundhouse
Our roundhouse was created by master carpenter/club member Joe Cooper. Masterpieces come in many, many pieces. I was supposed to paint and install the windows and doors. They have languished in my workshop for over a year. So, I was VERY grateful when club member Basil Casabona kindly took on the job of painting, assembling and installing the missing windows and doors. As you can see from these pics he is making excellent progress:
Looks great Basil.
