This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Here is a teaser piece I decided to upload from my upcomming Siding Set ...This little teaser is a Sawhorse and will be part of a much larger Siding Objects set soon to be released by me ...

This object is cloned from a column which as said in previous posts is the perfect object for these pieces .....

The poly and vert count are 316 and 604 respectivly !!!!

Here is a closeup of the sawhorse !!!!

Here are some screen shots of the items that are completed in the set so far !

Please feel free to comment and any suggestions or requests to go along with the Siding set before I upload (But believe me it will contain pretty much everything associated with siding a house) I will see what I can do !!!!!!

Please also check out these GREAT items that are already part of an ever growing construction project released by me for YOU ALL !!!!!!!!!!!

LMAO ...Yes I am going to release ALL the items together as a set when they are done ....And if this upcomming set doesnt get me featured then nothing will ....


The siding set is about halfway done and stands at 25 new meshes ...I have 1 Major project to finish then the rest is small simple stuff ...The siding stuff pack should be released in the next few days !!!!!!
I have added some screen shots of the stuff that is already done!

Hey tigmomx4, everything looks great!!
I can't wait until you finish...The Sawhorse looks great in my game...

BTW I have another Idea for you, incase you haven't thought of it...
Maybe you could make some lage and small peices of plywood to set on top of the Sawhorse...And maybe you can make some interior objects as well, like some unfinished cabinets...

idk it's just an idea...what do you think?

both great ideas ...I will start on other stuff once my siding project is complete and as of today it is like 90% done ...Unfortunatly im having problems with my cable and i am stuck with dial up right now so it might be a little while before i get the siding set uploaded as it is at like 40-45 new meshes and i still have a few more to go ....

I think i might do cabinets without the drawers and doors on them ..I think that would be pretty cool ...and unfinished wood texture ...I might also make a new interior wall texture for real looking drywall as i have been in construction for over 15 years and never seen drywall hung up and down it is always hung sideways for strength so i might make a couple wall textures to simulate that ...

Sounds good to me...
I can't wait until it's don...
Good luck with the cable...I've been trying to upload a house that I made but my computer freezes every time try, because we had a storm a while back and it fried the cord to the router, so I'm stuck with wireless internet and the card that I put in freezes my computer...So I don't know if I'll ever be able to upload my house... so yeah it sucks..

But everthing you plan on doing sounds great, and if okay with you I may come up witha few more great ideas for you....

Sounds good can't wait to see them....
the house isn't all that great seeing as how I'm not good at making houses, but I just thought I'd make house including your construction set and a few other construction set I have gotten from other site, and see what people think....
