CABIN Filed. April 16, 1935 2 Sheets-Sheet 2 a INVEN'TO BY Wm 5 ATTORNEY Patented July 14, 1936 UNITED STATES PATENT oFFics 1 Claim.

This invention relates to cabins, and has for the primary object the provision of a portable device which will be easy to assemble or take apart and may be conveniently carried or stored in a small space and when assembled will exclude weather elements and provide variable ventilation and. light to the interior thereof and may only be disassembled from the interior thereof.

With these and other objects in view, this invention consists in certain novel features of construction, combination and arrangement of parts to be hereinafter more fully described and claimed.

For a complete understanding of my invention, reference is to be had to the following description and accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 is a perspective view illustrating a cabin constructed in accordance with my invention.

Figure 2 is a vertical sectional view illustrating the same.

Figure 3 is a transverse sectional view illustrating the device.

Figure 4 is a perspective view illustrating one of the gables of the cabin.

Figure 5 is a perspective view illustrating one of the end walls of the cabin.

Figure 6 is a perspective view illustrating one of the sections of a side wall.

Figure '7 is a perspective view, partly in section, illustrating one of the sections of the floor of the cabin.

Figure 8 is a perspective view illustrating a fastener.

Referring in detail to the drawings, the numeral l indicates a knock-down cabin wherein the roof 2 thereof is constructed from any suit able fabric. The cabin includes end walls 3, side walls 4 and gables 5 mounted on and removably secured to the end walls and each of substantially triangular shape and provided with a notch 6 to receive a beam 1 for supporting the roof 2.

One of the end walls 3 is provided with a window opening 8 which may be closed by any wellknown type of window, while the other end wall is provided with a doorway 9 which also may be closed by any suitable type of door. The side walls 4 are partly of solid formation and partly of open structure to provide additional ventilation and sunlight when needed. The open structure of the side walls is closed by flaps N) forming an integral part of the roof. Fasteners II, as shown in Figure 8, are employed to secure the flaps ill to the side walls and also employed to secure flaps l2 to the gables, the flaps l2 being formed integrally with the roof 2. The flaps It] may extend to overlie a portion of the end walls and be secured in place by removable 5 cleats I 3.

The side walls t each consists of a pair of sections bolted or otherwise secured together, as shown at Hi. The solid portions of the sections are of panel construction reinforced by beams 10 15. The side and end walls rest upon flooring l6 and are bolted or otherwise secured thereto, as shown at ll. The flooring is made up of sections and which sections are reinforced by beams l8 adapted to rest upon the ground or a suitable foundation.

The end walls are of panel formation and are reinforced by beams H9. The beams of the end and side walls provide substantially rectangularshaped frames and the uppermost beams of the side walls form rests or seats for the gables which are bolted or otherwise secured thereto. The gables are also of panel construction reinforced by beams 20. The fasteners referred to are all arranged upon the interior of the cabin making it impossible to take the cabin apart from the exterior thereof. The interior'of the cabin may be ventilated by raising the flaps i0, and further ventilated by raising a part of the roof. Additional ventilation, of course, may be had through the doorway 9 and Window 8.

A cabin of the character described will be comparatively light in weight, easy to handle when disassembled and convenient to assemble and will provide variable Ventilation and also admit sunlight as desired.

Having described the invention, I claim:

A cabin comprising a sectional flooring, sectional side and end walls supported by said flooring, said side Walls having elongated ventilating openings located in the upper portions thereof and gable portions supported by said end walls,

a member supported by the gable portions, fabric roofing supported by the member, flaps formed on said roofing to open and close the ventilating openings of the side walls, flaps formed on the roofing and engaging the gable portions, fasteners detachably securing the flaps to the side walls and the gable portions, and fasteners detachably securing the side and end walls together and tothe flooring and the gable portions to the end walls and located within the walls and gable portions.

JOHN J. WILSON.
