Catalogue of white pine portable homes designed by James Davidson's Sons of Ottawa, Canada (ca. 1920). The houses were constructed of same size painted panels (3'2"x6'6") that could be transported and reassembled into a variety of structures - hunting cabins (2), cottages (5), church (1) garage (2), hen house (1), and dog house (1) are pictured here. The structures boasted standard size windows and doors, 7/8 siding tongued and grooved, 7/8" pine flooring, and heavy canvas roofs. Partitions were furnished to divide structures into any number of rooms desired. They were said to be strong, substantial and practically wind and storm proof, and their components were shipped in crates convenient for handling and transporting. The Hunter's Cabins Nos. 2 and 3, and Garage were said to fit in an ordinary wagon. Veranda sections could be ordered. No nails or tools required for construction - other than a srewdriver and wrench.
In very good condition.
