Paul...Thanks for posting that link to some of the houses Karl built...I knew I had seen his version somewhere...

DCrowe...I too hope Karl will "get back in the game"!...he is the only person I know who had developed a real knack for mass producing houses!...he also did some beautiful custom work...I believe you have some of his creations...I have only seen one of his houses in person...it was a railroad station...a real little gem!...

Howard,
Yes, I am fortunate to have several Karl Fey creations. I think two custom built and several from his catalogs. I still have the wonderful illustrated catalog he did once also. I hope to excavate down to the boxes these are stored in and get pics sometime this fall.
