Walthers Cornerstone Lakeshore Coal & Ice, had this one packed away for some time.  Contents look almost like a Bar Mills kit.

Hello all and thanks for looking in on the build. Read the instructions and opened the bags to checked out the parts, looks like everything is there. The second photo is the doors, windows, castings, 1/16 sq. and  5/32 sq. strip wood. The instructions don't say what the 5/32 wood is for, maybe used for bracing?

Removed the parts for base and did some light sanding then glued them together.
