This is the HO Scale Cabin Creek Series - Greely's Place - 2-3/16 x 2-3/8'' By B.T.S.
Kit consists of laser-cut basswood and plywood, individual battens, adhesive-backed rolled roofing, and while the photo shows rolled roofing on the cabin, the kit contains enough scale corrugated material to cover both the cabin and the porch - your choice. The tabbed construction provides for easy assembly.
I really enjoyed this model. The model is well packaged, and the laser cut pieces are accurately done ensuring a build with no significant problems. You do have to follow the directions, and particularly the build order. Lots of nice options on the build as well... the battens are optional (I used them as it gave the cabin some depth) and there is a choice of roofing material - metal or tar paper. Both roofing options would look great, but I chose the metal as I think it looks better weathered. The finished model will be used for a mountain hermit scene on my first layout. Will be matched with the Smokehouse and Chicken Coop kits from Woodland Scenics.
You have to be patient with this model, as there is a bit of custom snipping to do particularly if you want to use the battens. The chair for the porch comes in 5 separate pieces that you have to be very careful with. Take the appropriate care and this won't be a problem.
All in all... just the motivation I need to really get to work on the rest of the layout!
