This cook house was in the woods along the West Side Lumber Company in California, and was surrounded by bunk houses similar to the B.T.S. #17425. It was built in the 1920s and survived past the time the railroad stopped operation. The main building was divided into a kitchen, two storage rooms, and a dining room. Later, a screened pantry was added to the back. The deck across the front is curved for clearance since the track curves at that point.
This kit consists of laser-cut basswood and plywood, and tar-paper roofing. Urethane and brass details are included. Interior walls, individual battens, peel & stick window sashes, and positionable doors are included. The tabbed construction provides for easy assembly. The overall footprint is about 40' x 52'.
