Thanks all.  :)

Very nice. Are you planing to add shutters to the windows? I ask because if you do, please tell us how you made them, I want to try something similar.

I was thinking myself has.been it could do with some shutters. I may just do that.

That is a great building.  Just the right sort of thing to have as an objective.  I second the idea of some shutters and look forward to seeing how you did the roof.

I've had a few requests in other places for what I used for the roof of the warehouse, so for completeness I put a link here https://adventuresinlead.blogspot.com.au/2017/08/cheap-and-eay-pantile-roof-tutorial.html

Thanks guys - truly didn't think anyone around here might "learn" something, but glad some of you could find use.

And as has.been suggested above I have added shutters to the warehouse, that has broken up the walls nicely. The shutters are from https://warbases.co.uk/

They are the only shutter Warbases sell (I think) but they are 10mm by 22mm.
