Scope and content

File consists of records relating to the manufacture of various parts for pre-fabricated buildings to be manufactured by Precision Housing Co. The bulk of the file is shop drawings providing specifications for parts for the following building models: cutting, packing and checking sheets for parts for duplex houses models A, D, E, G and M. Some of the drawings are identified by building model and some by part number, the latter possibly for generic pieces used for multiple models. Note that none of the sets appear to be complete for any particular model of structure.

The file also includes tally sheets (packing lists?) for various pieces for Type A and Type D duplexes and packing lists for Type A.
