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.

I think houses were much better designed back then. I would just tweek the main floor plan so it has a more open feel and this would be a dream.

Porch Roof Construction


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.
