BOARDING HOUSE KIT
Kelley's Boarding House is the first of six kits in the Kelley's Landing series. Only 500 of each kit will be made.
The Boarding House is sort of a rambling late 1800's early 1900's type building. There are rooms to let on the second floor with two commercial rentable sections on the first. There are also entrances for the commercial renters on the backside of the building. The front side renters enter by first climbing the stair just to the rear of the wooden front sidewalk. They must cross an open walkway across the front of the building being careful not to hit their heads on the guide rods that hold up the lower canopy. Renters at the rear of the second floor enter by first climbing the open staircase at the back of the building. They enter a common hallway and gain entrance to their rooms from there. There are no inside stairs in this structure.
The commercial renters each have a rear entrance for private entry and deliveries of goods. The inside footage is not equal and one renter has a long corridor to walk before reaching the inner back door to his section. As the Boarding House abuts the next building to it's right there are no windows on either floor. There are three brick chimneys with each rentable area having a small coal fired stove for both heat and cooking purposes.
