UNITED STATES CHARLES A. EWING, OF LANSING, MICHIGAN.
METHOD AND MATERIAL FOR CONSTRUCTION OF HOUSES.
' Substitute for application Serial No. 701,928, filed March 26, 1924. This application filed August 11, 1927. Serial No. 212,351.
My invention relates to the materials for the construction of houses, and to the method of constructing houses by the use of the particular material herein shown and described.
The'objectsof this invention are to make a house with the materials herein set forth that shall be in its external appearance an imitation of a log house, and which shall yet be cheap and simple in construction.
This application is a substitution of my application for Letters Patent of the United States filed March 26, 1924, Serial. Number ing the members together.
Throughout the description and drawings the same number is used to refer to the same part.
Referring more particularly to the drawing, numeral 1 designates the principal member or imitation log employed in constructing buildings according to my design, and is shaped as shown in the drawing substantially in the form of one-half of an ellipse with rabbets at each edge to be joined together as shown in Fig. 1. These imita tion logs may, of course, be of any desired length or dimensions without departing from my invention, and may be curved more or less as desired by the architect or person erecting the dwelling. In constructing a building with my device, the members 1 are set up alternately in lengths as shown at 1, 2 and 3, the alternate ones projecting beyond those between them. Cross pieces are set up at right angles with them as shown at 4 and 5, the alternate ones also projecting in the same manner, the one between, indicated at 6 by dotted lines, abuts against the projecting member 2. To give the appearance of a log, a short piece 7 is coped or shaped to fit the curve of the member 3, and the other members occupy similar positions, and are placed a short distance from the projecting end of the cross member 4, the
joints are explained the mode of arranging the parts 7 thereof, What I claim and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is 1. A building having a wooden frame of ordinary construct-ion covered on the outside with wooden planks having their outer surface convex, the ends of alternate planks projecting beyond the sides of the building, short pieces fitted at their inner extremities to the curve of said planks and abutting against and fastened to said planks a short distance from each of said projecting ends, and a filler member mounted to till the space between said ends.
2. A biiiilding having a wooden frame of ordinary construction covered on the outside with wooden planks having their outer sur faces convex, the ends of alternate planks projecting beyond the sides of the building, short pieces fitted at their inner extremities to the curve of said planks and abutting against said planks a short distance from each of said projecting ends, and a filler member mounted to fill the space between said ends. 7
3. In combination with the frame of a building, planks having an inner fiat and an outer convex face mounted on said frame so that the ends of alternate planks will project beyond the said building, members abuttin against the wall of said building near an parallel to said projecting ends, and fillers arranged between said mentioned members and said projecting ends whereby there is given the appearance of the projecting end of a log.
4. In combination with the frame of a building, planks having an inner flat and an outer convex face mounted on said frame so that the ends of alternate planks will project beyond the said building, members abutting against and attached to the wall of said building near and parallel to said projecting ends, and fillers arranged between said mentioned members and projecting ends whereby there is given the appearance of the projecting end of a log.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature.
