393 Abandoned House

Our foreground model was just built and the dwelling to the right was constructed forty years ago. Now does it make any sense to build a brand new abandoned house? Yes, as this is a quirk of a model railroader or any model builder. Next, I’ll install lights and do a night shot to emphasize the holes in the walls and roofs.
Both of the dwellings have been unoccupied for years, so the neighboring flagstone company has taken the liberty of spreading their stone rubble beyond its boundaries.

Neither structure is a piece of cake to build, however, the abandoned house was the most challenging.
