Containers were not invented in the time line I am making this layout to look. Haing a bit of fn finding a period correct old tray back farm truck. I nearly had won but missed out.
Oddly enough the shets of corrugated iron that arrived had some minor damage to them and I do not want to spoil that look. Just want to maybe 'age' it a little bit ith some rust. This was made using alfoil but a bit thicker than the household stuff.

This is my attempt to build an open barn for the tractor and a tool shed. The corrugated iron when it arrived is plain alfoil with the corrugations in it and was too new looking. So I started to age it and make it look rusty. In one attempt in the photo it looks more like bark on a tree than rust. I'm happy with the out come seeing how it was my 2nd n 3ed attempt at building a model.

You should be happy with the result. I love the bent tin on the shed

The door brace should go from bottom on hinge side to top on slam side.

I know the whole World is a critic.

Yes, I forgot about fitting it the correct way. Reason it should go from the bottom against the shed to the top away from the shed is that the weight gets transferred down to the bottom hinge.
Yes, I am happy with the effort and the imperfectionms as this was what I was looking for but the bent bit of tin was an accident and because it looked so right, rough, it had to stay. At the moment I need to continue with the track and fix a minor issue which may turn into something worse. Then set out the paddock below the homestead.
Still looking for other accessories and I have decide exactly where the homestead is to sit exactly so I can finish that area and then add the power poles to supply the power to it. I have to reserch and learn to apply new grass and have it look right. I have the grass but need to practise the technique of applying it. I bought the old style stuff and not the new fancy electrostatic grass.

Oh yes, thinks me, look for a carpentry blunder type cartoon, but having found two stopped before the copyright police jumped on me!
Hmmmm? Quick scribble, and produced my own!
Albeit somewhat fuzzy because of my cheapy camera/phone! And meanwhile on my own little model project, using some "surplus" plastic to build a correct to B for specs tray . . . Cheers cobbadog . . . ;)

If it was a steel door it would make absolutely no difference as the triangles can not move and the welds/bolts on the joins are fixed forever.

The reason for the cross bar coming back to the bottom hinge is for wooden doors for no matter how hard you try the nails, dowels or bolts will eventually have slight movement and the sagging weight will either be transferred to the fixed lower hinge by correct cross bar or to the outer bottom corner by incorrect crossbar making the door sag. as it sags it also increases the tension on the top hinge screws pulling them out.
