Bob meets Gavin and Michelle Langley, owners of a vintage Sears kit house, who plan to preserve both the historic and sentimental values of the house. Bob review the proposed plans and discusses previous remodeling efforts.
Here is a Sears catalog home from 1913. It is # 187 called the Sherburne. It is a big and an interesting bungalow home. Enjoy the tour of this colorful house 🙂
My personal favorite of the Sears & Roebuck line of mail order kit homes. This one, possibly Victorian, is from the 1913 catalog homes, design #118. It is a Sketchup model of the house.
A fascinating excerpt from a UK TV documentary from 1995ish about catalogues. You could even buy complete houses!
