Discussion > Skippy's Hot Dog Shop

Attempted a build of skippy's.
Went pretty much like this:
Should be simple
Patience, patience
Several four letter words
Burn it and start again.

Double step down to roof profile does not work.
Interior is too tall for a recessed roof.

Warning to anyone trying this build will need some modification to get it done.

Hi Joe,

Sorry to hear you had issues. If I remember rightly, I had to tweak it to get it built, but then I print the kits on regular printer paper and apply that to a core of foamboard, rather than building them straight from the cardstock, so I never built them as they are intended to be built anyway.

Alas, because of that, I can't really offer any pointers that might help. I can however, off you a couple of reference photos of my printer-paper-over-black-foamboard version of the kit. If I remember rightly, I used cereal box card for the floor and roof of it, and foamboard for the four walls.

Thanks,
Dan

I suspect a missed fold or two. I've built it and didn't have difficulty. The problems you describe are not terribly hard to overcome but ill take a look at it all the same.

After taking a few days to think about changes that could be made was able to save the work I had and finish the hot dog shop. Still needed modifications to complete.
Didn't mean to go off the deep end.
