1920's Sears Mail Order Home
Between 1908 and 1940, Sears sold about 70,000 homes in 48 states through their mail-order Modern Homes program, with 370 designs that you might not readily recognize as a kit home. Sears kit homes were shipped via boxcar and came with a 75-page instruction book. Each kit contained 10,000 - 30,000 pieces and the framing members were marked to facilitate construction.
This Sears Mail Order bungalow in downtown Palatine built in 1920's still stands straight and level just like it did when first built. During a recent renovation, a 1940 phone book and a door plate from a coal burning furnace was found in a wall and now is on display with the home.
