Howdy folks,

This is a continuation of the original build thread for a Choctaw Lumber Company logging camp kitchen (http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=47400&whichpage=1).

This thread will focus on the accompanying dining structure. The foot print and size will be a duplicate of the kitchen, except for window and door placement, which have been modified to bring the hungry workers in one door and out the other.

This version will have an interior including heating stoves, kitchen warming stove and oven, camp tables, table clothes, dishes, coffee pots, etc.

According to the head cook, the plan is to bring meals from the kitchen to the diner, staging food on the stoves and tables, then plating them for delivery to the hungry workers.

Since this structure is like all structures on the Choctaw Lumber Company, it is not electrified and relies on kerosene lanterns for light. Wood is used for both the cooking and heating stoves.

This post should kick it off and put the onus on me to get with it and build something!

Happy rails,
Mike Corley

Howdy folks,

Thanks for the encouragement.

When I made the kitchen side and end templates, I made a duplicate set for the diner. Here is the beginning. I'm using 3X6 wood as the primary framing material.



I decided on an easier approach than the operative approach and decided to vary stud width to match the windows:



That's it folks. Next I'll fit the siding and windows.

Happy rails,
Mike C

Howdy folks,

So the build progresses with the frame on one side completed. I put a couple of stop blocks in to see if I liked them. Still undecided though. The inside will be sheathed on the lower side with 1 X 10 and the top left open. with a protective covering (newspapers) Next, external sheathing and window fitment.

Howdy folks,

Exterior siding went on easily with transfer adhesive. I am still using the 3M brand used in the Kitchen construction. The siding boards are simple coffee sirs which match the dimensions needed.

The windows helped guild the application of siding so all was straight.



Have fun,
Mike Corley

That's a neat trick using the tape like that.
Good job.

As you think, so will you be.

Looks good Mike.

Great idea for holding the siding on.

Very nice Mike! The inside wall braced, and siding boards looking great. You can't beat those coffee sticks when it come to logging structures.

Howdy folks,

The business side of the diner is nearing completion. This photo shows the siding applied and temporarily fitted windows and doors.




I can't decide whether to paint or build another side next. Decisions, decisions, decisions....

Happy rails,
Mike Corley

Howdy folks,

I decided to complete all the walls before painting. Here is the back side of the diner with transfer adhesive applied. The second photo is of the Tichy windows test fit in the wall.





Next step is wall studs, then siding.

Happy rails,
Mike C
