      Mine at Underhill

      There is a siding at Underhill, and one off of Dead Rooster Gulch, that just begged for a two-level structure. 

      Last year I built out a concrete block wall as the backing, and this weekend I started designing the building.  After a bit of CAD (Cardboard Aided Design), I came up with this.

       

       

      After I finalize the fit, I'll start cutting up PVC board.

      That will be an impressive structure.

      Does that structure fit where those 2 gondolas are in the first picture? Following along for sure.

      Yes.  The top black hopper will be under the top part, and the brown gondola will be next to the lower part.

      Finally, CAD I can understand and actually work with...

      It sure looks like you lost your straight edge on that door.

      This is ExAcTlY why modeling by eye and not to scale works best! Never hurts to have a battery operated micrometer on hand as the mechanical ones are only to be accessed in time of war .
