Modern Home No. 264B191 1916 SEARS ROEBUCK MODERN HOMES Sears' mastery at anticipating the desires of early 20th century home buyers is easily seen in Modern Home No. 264B191. Like many of the plans, it's small, but has a logical, "modern" flow between spaces. Its solid Craftsman style, attractive facade, and convenient layout would have appealed to many buyers. Even by today's standards, it's a jewel of a house at about 1100 square feet. This plan was available only from 1912 to 1916.

Modern Home No. 264B145 1916 SEARS ROEBUCK MODERN| Sears' Plan No. 264B145 (later named the Arlington) is a large home with grand spaces.

Shirtwaist Foursquare House plan, circa 1916, Sears, Roebuck Co. Modern Home No. 264B148 / The Glendale

1916 Sears, Roebuck and Company 2 story house for one thousand & ninety two dollars. From 1908 to 1940 Sears, Roebuck and Company sold ready to build house kits with no sawing or nailing. Everything was bolted together. The "home in a box" as it was called, was delivered to the local train depot. By building your own home, this allowed a home buyer to be able to afford a good quality home.

The Hillrose 1923 Sears Roebuck Modern Homes...if someone ever discovers time-travel I'm going back to 1923 with $3573 in cash, buying this, coming back to the present and renovating. Then I could sell it for $1.5 million, at least around here. Now THAT is flipping a house!

This is very likely the catalog page from which my great-grandparents, Jake and Fanny Queen, ordered their Elsmore.
