Listing Detail Tabs

This highly detailed laser cut wargames model kit joins 4Ground's growing
range of American Legend buildings. This model with very accessible, fully
detailed, interior makes an ideal objective or terrain piece for The French
Indian Wars, The War Of Independence, The War Of 1812-15, the Civil War, Wild
West and even early C20th Prohibition Bootleg Gangs.

The French settlers of New France built their first homes and hunting cabins
with Poteau en Terre - post in ground or 'earthfast' - construction,
which was made with well hewned vertical log timber posts driven into the
ground. For their more permanent dwellings, like this one,
'poteaux-sur-solle' ­- post on cill - was used, though lots more
hewning was required to square the logs, this method was easier to undertake and
much preferred to 'pièce sur pièce' - log piece on log piece - used
by the New English. The inside floor was suspended from supporting posts and
insulated underneath the floor, windows had shutters on the outside, the roof
was covered with split shingles and the Chimney was constructed by making a
wooden frame and infilling with coursed small stones. So simple and yet well
designed that for hundreds of years this small type of dwelling was built by the
decedents of pioneering Acadians, Cajans (Canadians transplanted south) and
Creoles of Louisiana.

This kit is rated 4Ground skill level 3
