Nova Scotia iron ore roofing has been applied and painted in O&G orange. Nova Scotia grey shale stucco siding is being applied today. As it dries it turns a darker grey.

Completed my roof design this morning. The center section of the roof is raised to accommodate the overhead crane components.

O & G, Orange & Gray. Red & Black to the track... by rail. Orange & Gray the other way...the Hi-way, by truck.

Working on my HO three-bay garage for my O&G Trucking Company. O&G stands for Orange & Grey. Using beach grass from Cheverie, Nova Scotia for metal ventilation ducts, and orange oven-baked Sculpey for many interior items as well as exterior window frames. All wooden floor and walls are coffee stir sticks. The external walls will be stucco finished using grey shale from Walton, Nova Scotia. An operating overhead crane will move along the two HO brass rail sections. LED lighting will also be installed.
