Wooden Tower Plans

The Pacific Northwest Region Forest Service has this neat collection of wooden fire tower plans available on their website. The various plans are from 1936 to 1965 and are provided for historic reference. While as the website mentions they do not meet current building codes, I've often dreamed about building one of these and using it for a station tower and perhaps having a hamshack up in the tower cab. Maybe someday when I have a ten acre wooded lot and a lot of time on my hands...and lots of life insurance.... :-)

Thanks the Pacific Northwest Region Forest Service for preserving these documents and posting them online.
