Progress on the Warehouse

Here's the latest photo showing the roof in place and the half walls blocking off the loading dock primed but not yet painted. The half-walls are interesting; the prototype photos show one of the warehouses had them, but the other didn't. I'm not sure what they're for - safety of the dock crew, or a way to avoid having produce disappear off the dock?

The roof (both front and back) is built as a single assembly with a huge amount of bracing, mostly cut from 1/4" strips cut from the 0.062" styrene sheet. I spent an evening last week bracing and regluing the Smith Manufacturing building because the 0.030 styrene sheet warped significantly over time. I don't want to do that again!
