HO Scale Kelleys Boarding House Kit

 NOTE: These kits are to be discontinued. When current inventory runs out that will be the last. No new Laser Cut kits will be produced. Only stick-built type kits.

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.

Kelley's Boarding House

- 4/14/2010

Great model. I really appreciated the step by step directions. There is one thing I found out while working with the "tar paper" material. It is impossible to cut with a knife and I tried several different ones. I tried using a pair of scissors and it cut like butter - no frayed edges.
I'm now working on the Tobacconist Building.
Wonderful kits, Rusty Stumps company/personnel are a pleasure to work with.

Boarding House

- 4/6/2010

Basically a great kit. However, there are a few mistakes in the otherwise fine book/manual. On page 19, the second note says the front windows don't get sills but picture 4B-4 shows otherwise. On page 22, it references W10 when it should be W11. I caught this just in time as I was trying to enlarge the opening. Page 72 says use 2X6 trim, but there is none supplied; however there is plenty of 2X10 that I never did find a use for. Finally, I switched to black paper for the tar paper - your's was almost impossible for me to work with, don't know what I was doing wrong. These are almost in the category of nit picks on an otherwise fine kit. Keep it up.

RSSM: None of the first floor windows have sills, second floor and all doors do. As to the stripwood, please contact us on any wrong, broken or otherwise damaged kit materials. We will replace such items free of charge. Otherwise I'm glad you like the kit. Walt

interesting kit

- 4/19/2009

This is the first kit of this type thst I have worked on. Was easy to build, long as you read instructions first and take your time. Only problem I had was with some of the small cuts, stubby fingers, from being in the Army 30 yrs., plays havoc with your hands. Lot more fun then the run-of-the-mill plastic kits. Purchased the next kit, and looking forward to starting that one. I give it 5 stars.

One Sweet Kit

I am almost done with this kit and it has been a joy to build. The materials and instructions are excellent. The instructions are so well written it is like having a master builder next to you telling you how to proceed. I am enjoying this kit a lot and look forward to building the Tobacconist. Keep up the good work Rusty Stumps.
