Farmhouse Sss

I had some requests to do a set of sketches for a farmhouse. I went out in the local countryside and took pics of 4 different houses. I combined what I felt were the best features of the 4, plus other kits, and came up with my own design. Farmhouses, by nature, are normally large, but in the interest of saving space I made this house a bit smaller, for a 2 5/16 x 1 9/16 footprint. You can make it larger by adding a shed or other out buildings. If you don’t like the pictured colors you can paint as desired.

I cut out the parts on this one, raffled it off, and sent it in an envelope to Phil(goodstuff3). He did a great job of building it.

I recommend using styrene as wood thicknesses can be too big and look out of scale. Window openings are sized for Rslaserkits sheet #3980, 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 your choice. You can print your own from my other threads, or Rich at Rslaserkits has some good choices.

Thought I'd upload an attempt at your farmhouse, N scale. I know it's a little crude, particularly close up like this. Be gentle, it's only my third scratch build. On the layout with some strategic bushes it will look better. I skipped the side porch roof and some of the windows, but added a foundation and steps. The roof is RS kit's paper slate.

Thanks for the plans!

I really like it! Good job!  I'm in the process of building my Round barn from the sketch set.

Nice job.

The good thing about farmhouses is that as long as they look like they’ve been added onto, they look correct. Put some sleeping dogs on the porches and you’re done.

But, would they always be sleeping?   :trollface:

Doesn’t everyone have a couch on their porch?
