Built-Rite House No. 2 - Scans

Toys & Stuff continues its look at the Built-Rite cardboard houses of the 1930s with House No. 2, a nice little one-story affair complete with flower boxes and awnings! As usual, first we'll present the scans following up with isometric photos next week. The reason I present the scans is so that people who enjoy making their own paper models can print them out and make their own paper buildings. Of course you'll have play with sizing to get the walls all the same size but it will give you an opportunity to make a house that's actually larger than the originals. For example, House No. 2 presented here today is rather small. The walls are only 3 7/8" (9.8cm) W x 3 1/4" (8.3cm) D when assembled and it only stands 3 1/2" (8.9cm) H.   So, if you're one of those who likes tinkering with paper models - Enjoy!

The wall sections are too long for the scanner platen and are therefore presented as two scans.
