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.

I can see the handiness of that kind of model. It's set in a fine location for viewing.

Fascinating model and very detailed.

These must have been nice subjects for you to photograph. They don't pose or make funny faces.
