House Framing Model, 1940, part of the exhibit Old-Growth Architecture: the Art, Craft, and Function of Wood, on display through July 2014 at the Architectural Heritage Center
From the label: Models like this were used for teaching construction at vocational schools. The "exploded view" of this model allowed instructors to show all phases of the domestic building process, from framing to shingling. Gift from Ken Barker and Jeff Stookey My son Leland took photos of the model, too.
Tomorrow, my artsy attempts. I need to go back take some more.
