Supply house Sss

Here is a set of plans for a Supply house that you can scratch build. I hesitate to call it anything but a supply house, because it can be anything from an electrical supply, to plumbers, to hardware. It kind of depends on which details you put around it. This is my own design and  the footprint is 2  7/16 x 3 3/16 and is a relatively easy build, complicated only by the large number of parts. If you don’t like the colors, you can paint as desired. There are parts templates to print so you can save measuring steps.

Choice of materials is up to you. It can be done in wood but sketches are based on styrene thicknesses. If you use another material adjust dimensions accordingly. You can also adjust openings for your own windows or doors. Window material is easily cut from clear blister pack plastic. 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 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.

Cut out parts carefully using a SERB and straight edge. It is important to follow assembly sketches IN SEQUENCE or some parts may not fit.

Roofing material is your choice.

If anyone has any questions on any of my plans, I’m just a PM away, and I can provide you with specific tips for each scratch build.
