Earlier in the thread you said that one of the ends was salvageable. Not knowing much about rebuilding wood cars I assumed that meant you would take the whole end- siding, door and all- and just drop it into place, but it looks like you disassembled it first, right?


The end posts were rotted away and were replaced with new as was the top plate. But the rest of the wall was used just as we took it down. There was very little inside siding left. And since the top plate was replaced, we really just had two halves to fit in place.

We thought one door was salvageable but it required a lot of work. Until I started to rebuild it and found it was rotted inside so I made a new one. We were given a door by the Whippany folks when they had theirs professionally rebuilt.

Later!
