Plaster and bricks were based with light white-beige mix. The bricks were drybrushed with terracota (Lifecolor)
Some bricks were painted individualy with fine brush (Lifecolor - rust colours)
Weathering of walls (various AK washes + drybrush with oil colours)
The mortar between bricks was done the same way as I described in my water-gate diorama (mix of pigments + pigment fixer)
Some beams to support the roof were added (Evergreen styrene profiles). These beams are clearly visible on the photos of real thing.
Beams and their supports were painted with basic grey-beige colour, then the "heavy chipping" medium from AK was applied. After it dried, the green colour was applied on it.
I started to work on the wooden annex in the meantime
The surface of beams was dampened. Chipping on the beams was done using toothpicks and hard bristle brush. After a few hours of drying, the beams were treated with AK washes. Some small areas were redone with a little lighter base colour.
The dampness and dirt on the plaster is simulated using dark grey oil colours and AK washes.

The beginning of the work on the roof
The basic construction of the roof was patiently covered with aluminium plates (from food containers). Now I don´t think that it was the best possible solution.
Various rust colours (Lifecolor) were applied on the roof (with brush and sponge)
Then the layer of chipping medium and red colour was applied.

Windows and doors for the wooden annex are finished.
