Click on the associated link for a collection of images and
photographs of almost all 447 house designs sold through the Sears
Modern Homes program. You can search the house listings by
clicking on a group of years (1908–1914,
You will then see a thumbnail picture of each house, and next to
it are the house name and/or model number, plus the price range.
Click on the thumbnail to see a full-screen version of the Sears
Modern Homes catalog page on which the house appeared and floor
plans and descriptions (if available).
If you do not know exactly which house you are looking for, be
patient. In 1908, Sears did not foresee its houses being searched
as part of a historical record, and so its cataloging was not
consistent. Some houses have numbers only, some have numbers and
names, and some house names were even reused for different house
designs through the years. And through the years, Sears could
modify subtly a house's design while keeping the same name. Again,
under each year, we have listed each house as it was listed in the
Modern Homes catalogs. Enjoy the images, and we hope you find the
Sears home you are looking for.
