Those Gardentexture buildings are beautiful. But I've been reluctant to spend the hundreds of dollars for one of the big kits knowing you have to keep up the maintenance on wood structures. My home is done with cedar siding, but I haven't had time in the last year to power wash and stain it. If you don't do it every several years the wood doesn't look so nice after a while.

Three year ago I put up a 60' plastic railroad for my then two year old. Then I bought a bunch of those decorative birdhouse buildings. Without any additional weatherproofing, many of them didn't last the summer. A handful have held together structurally, so I put them in a corner under the bushes and call it the "shantytown" ;)

I have three kits still in boxes from the Town Line series. I think they must have came out back in the 80's. These are all made of wood, so I will plan to build them in the next few months to see how it works out.
