The Kilbourne 1923 SEARS ROEBUCK MODERN HOMES A steeper than usual roof pitch adds a bit of the English Cottage to an otherwise very Craftsman-style bungalow home. The facade is particularly handsome with the two forward gables and the large front porch and terrace. Inside, it is very modern with an open floor plan and easy access from one room to the next. Convenience was clearly a consideration when Sears' designers planned the Kilbourne.

Sears sold everything needed to build this house for a little more than 5K. Look for the post of the finished home!
