This is my last sketch set. Sketch sets are perfect for those that want to make a structure COMPLETELY from scratch, but most seem to want a kit.  I have no plans to make more unless I start growing younger. Many thanks to those who have enjoyed them and made nice comments.

Sss  127  Kevington

Named for our first son-in-law here is another modern 2 story.

With a footprint of  3 9/16 x 3 9/16  it is a moderate difficulty build.  It can be done in wood but sketches are based on styrene thicknesses. If you use another material adjust dimensions accordingly. Paint parts before assembly, except where the edges glue to other parts.  Always check ahead in assembly sketches to see which surfaces may need to have paint removed before assembly. 

The building directions and materials 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. The best way to cut out window openings is with a corner punch. It is important to follow assembly sketches IN SEQUENCE or some parts may not fit.  If you do printable shingles, print them on full sheet label paper.

With no interior walls, you may want to put curtains inside windows.

This is my last sketch set.

Wow that's a thing of beauty Gary! Thanks very much for your sketches.

Is there a spot where we can find all of your sketches in one place?

Yeah never mind. That was literally under my nose the whole time.
