Each student will be provided a set of materials to build a generic trackside industrial building with dock (see photos of prototypes). This is NOT a kit with everything precut ready to assemble. Though certain parts will be precut the project is designed to teach different construction methods and how to construct a structure, rather than just assemble a kit. The set of materials will include a piece of industrial urethane foam to be formed into the structures' foundation. The building will be made out of premium Baltic birch plywood. The dock and trim will be made of #1 clear cedar. The structure will include everything in the photos including a commercially made window and man door. The student will scratch build the industrial sliding door. The student will be able to customize the look of their structure as they cut and fit all of the trim and details. Also included is a custom made sign of the students choosing. The structure will be offered in two different versions. One with roll type roofing or one with a premium Club cedar shake roof. We will discuss different finishes and their use on models and the student will furnish whatever paints or stains they would like to use for their custom structure

Registration will be via this calendar entry but payment will be direct to Mike/Warner.  If you have any questions please contact Warner Swarner or Mike Fisher.

NOTEClass size is limited to 6 club members.


Cost: $55 for one with roll roofing

        $70 for one with premium cedar shakes
