|The Westly, apparently one of the top 4 models.|
With Sears in its current cratering state, it's possible that people don't know that it once shipped not only girdles, engagement rings, and farm equipment, but houses. From 1908-1940, you could have all the pre-cut materials shipped to you on a rail car (plumbing and heating extra) and build the home on your own lot. The lot sizes were included so you could decide.

|Floor plan for "Modern Home #115" from 1908-1914.|
By 1940, the homes are virtually all two-story or 1 & 1/2 story models, more Cape Cod than bungalows.
Do you have any Sears homes in your neighborhood, or have you seen any?
