Sears home-kit from their 1908 catalog.
where’s the page2
It’s amazing. The closets are tiny. There’s 1 bathroom for 4 bedrooms. It’s amazing how spoiled people are now with master suites, walkin closets, etc.
Here are some other house kits for sale from Sears back in the days:
This one would set you back 700 bucks.
Sears should introduce this back into the market
These houses are still standing today after 100+ years. Amazing!
Hey, I grew up in a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom flat with 7 people max in the family. You do the math…
These are hilarious today. Tiny bedrooms. No laundry room. One toilet upstairs, none down. $2500 was a lot of money then. Plus it didn’t include land or labor. No garage or landscaping either.
I gues the $725 one expected you to use an out house.
725 in 1913, is worth 18.5K today.
builders are screwing people
No reason why Sears can’t leave the retail to Amazon and go do houses on the cheap again…
