Several new videos ... and possible death blow to progress?

I've still been working on my new building:

Also, I've recently uploaded a couple of video to Youtube:

First ... some views of the progress made so far:

Second ... I've decided to finish some of the areas that didn't have scenery yet. So, I made a time lapse video of me taking down the structures. It illustrates how the track and structure is modular in construction.

And, as mentioned in the title, progress on the layout may be temporarily suspended for hopefully not too long of a time. I am embarking on some major home renovations, of which I get to do all the labor. Plans include:

  • New kitchen (cabinets, counter tops and backsplash)
  • New recessed lighting in kitchen (none there now), which means new wiring and switches
  • Installing hardwood floors throughout the first floor of my house (approx 800 square feet)
  • Repairing vaulted ceiling in living room (every joint cracked since I just had a new roof put on and the roofers did a LOT of pounding) and repairing some water damage (which necessitated the new roof). Drywall taping 18 feet in the air is less than fun.
  • Lots and lots of painting
I hope to still be able to work when I can on the layout.

  1. Are these on public display? Is there an opportunity to see them in real life?
