I make no claims today for quality of my work, either in construction or photography. But you may note that it has been a while since I posted, and under those circumstances, it seemed to me that getting anything built, photographed, and posted, was the objective.

We can deal with quality later.

This is a Bayko set No. 0 example - the Poultry House.

It really should have some chickens.

Part of my purpose was to work a bit with a new camera light, and as is often the case, use of the new, superior tool has resulted in poorer quality results. But once I get some more practice with it, I think it will pay off.

Bayko is fun - and has the advantage of being easily relocatable, which is not so true of stone constructions, and is especially useful while experimenting with new lighting arrangements.

After a long lull, good block play.

I like the look of that

It does need chickens

I don't recall ever seeing a brick chicken coop before.

Maybe my next project will be a brick sheep house.

Could be a railroad control station

Ja :)

The resemblance to a railroad switch tower or block tower is what drew me to this model, and its suitability for railroad structures was a big part of what drew me to Bayko in the first place.

I thought I had built & posted the Bayko 'Signal Box' at some point, but it doesn't turn up in a search, so sooooooooooon.

The chickens say they could do a fine job controlling trains.
