Single story Row house Sss

This is probably the most versatile set of sketches I have done. It allows you to build a variety of designs by using different walls and windows. You can build the shed attached to any wall, or as a detached unit. These Row houses are typical of mining towns or other depressed areas. The footprint is 1” x 1 ¼”  so they are small and ideal for N scale. If you don’t like the pictured colors you can paint as desired. The parts templates include enough parts to do 3 complete structures with just one printing.

I recommend using styrene as wood thicknesses can be too big and look out of scale. Window openings are sized for Grandt line #8005, as other windows are too big, but you can also adjust openings for your own windows. Paint parts before assembly, except where the edges glue to other parts.

The building directions are in the sketches, and to make your build easier you can enlarge them to full size and print them out. Read directions in dimensioned parts sketches and assembly sketches before cutting out parts as you may want to change some sizes or cut fewer, or additional, openings.

Included sketches are: Overview sketches, Parts templates,  Assembly sketches  and PDF’s.

To print the part templates actual size, use the PDF's. Select best printer quality, set PDF zoom to 100%, and page scaling to "none" or actual size. Check your printed page to see that 3" lines are exactly 3" long. Once you have template printed, you can cut with scissors (leave a 1/8" border) and arrange on your material for maximum sheet usage. Part templates for siding are a mirror image, when needed, so that you can cut walls with siding side down (easier to cut). Be sure siding grooves are oriented correctly. Use rubber cement or Krylon Easy Tack Repositionable Adhesive to glue paper templates to your material and then just cut on lines. No measuring ! Paper comes off easily.

Follow assembly sketch directions.

Roofing material is up to you, and Rich at Rslaserkits has some good choices. Unless you bevel the roof pieces there will be a gap. Overlapping roofing material can cover these gaps.

The closest I have to that is the Pre-fab road house John. It was meant to be built on stilts, (for building on a mountainside) but I removed them.
