Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Sears Homes is my series of homes that were designed by Sears, Roebuck and Co. From 1908 to 1940, Sears, Roebuck and Co. issued catalogues with house designs in them. Customers would choose a home and mail their request to the company. The company would then send all the supplies ordered (pre-cut lumber, lighting, doors, etc.) and the customer would build their own home! Now as I've said before I love more simple, classic homes and these are exactly that so you can imagine my excitement upon finding these lots. I was so excited in fact, I ordered three books filled with these homes so be prepared for a lot of homes in this series!

This lot is entitled The Westly, first published in 1913. The following is an excerpt from a catalogue describing the lot:

The Westly is a high grade two-story home, retaining the architectural beauty of a modern bungalow. This two story bungalow is built on a concrete block foundation and is sided with narrow beveled clear cypress siding. All rooms on both floors are light and airy.

This house has:
- 3 bedrooms and 1,5 baths

- partially furnished (all plumbing, lighting, some electronics, and counters)

- style: bungalow

All kinds of comments are welcome.

The houseplan version online is from the 1913 and can be found here:
However, the version I used is the 1926 version and cannot be found online to my knowledge.

Lot Size: 3x3
Lot Price: 41,857

This house is simply adorible. If it were a kitten, everyone would be rushing to adopt it, that's how cute it is.

Wow, I wrote a 10 page paper on Sears houses a few months ago! This is such an awesome idea! Thanks much!

Do you think you can build the Avalon? It's my favorite of the Sears houses, and I'm horrible at building. Thanks!

This house is so cool, I'm from Milwaukee, WI so we have lot's of bungalows here. You have an awesome gift for recreating these houses. I just bought a house in July I wish I could've gotten a bungalow but my house is very cute. I wish the price would've been that good, My house cost 60,000 for a 4 bedroom, 1 bath with full dining and living room.
