Structure for the layout

This was an enjoyable structure kit to build. Not as much satisfaction as scratch building but this was way faster. I added a few details to the front and a different stack to the roof.  I also used the Wild West galvanized roofing instead of the shake shingles that come with the kit.  They're paper and go on really fast.  They have just a hint of rust to them.  As I've been told, many times the galvanized roofing would be painted to make it last and since I didn't want this to look too run down, I didn't want it too weathered.  This will be some sort of mining supply, general store type building for the town up on the branch.  I guess I need to name it something.
