This Saw Filer Shack is modeled after one that was used Manary Logging Co.In Siletz Country Or. You don't need a logging layout to enjoy this kit, can you picture it being used as a flower shop, Garden center or artist studio. It's just small enough at a scale 12 by 24-6 ft. To fit in most any area. All the windows in the front walls are made so you can have then open to any position you like. Plan on some time with the windows as there are 20 in the front walls. As above all parts are supplied except the roofing and interior. McKenzie Iron and Steel co. is working on an interior for the saw filers building along with the Bunk house. I will post a contact and price when these kits are ready, I can't wait myself as they do some of the best casting out there.

Is based on some of the logging camp skid houses used in the northwest in the early 1900s through the end of the railroad logging. The kit is sized to fit on a B-man On30 flat car, but skid are supplied so you can set up camp and not tie up your revenue earning rolling stock or sidings. The car scales out at 12 ft wide and 24 ft 6" long. The kit is cut from birch plywood and all the widows are laser cut with cut to fit glazing. All the trim and widows are cut from sticky back veneer except the corners witch are milled angle stock. The only parts not supplied are the roofing and Interior. The roofing is glue down tar paper.
A small structure based on a design by Paul Templar.

co-workers that has cancer and could not find
a Saloon for his layout.

With a foot print of 10 x 20 feet they will fit almost anywhere. Kit inclues shack and 2 bunk bed kits. Thanks to Frank Telewski PH.D. for the use of his drawings.
