I sized everything to maximize use of a 4x8 sheet of plywood. Nominal 
size of the single-story building is 4ft wide, 2 ft deep, almost 3ft 
tall (single sheet). Three sheets will get you two two-story buildings 
(same width/depth, just taller) with some leftover. The church (three 
sheets) is 5ft long, 3ft deep, and about 7ft tall at the steeple.

The design wasn't as sturdy as I'd like, I'll be revising it after they 
hook up the power in the new shop. And I finish the closet. And build 
the pantry.
