A wonderful pattern book from the days when Sears sold affordable kit houses. From a great period in U.S. home building, showing a variety of popular home styles and floor plans. Its well-worn condition is proof of how many people loved these pattern books, thumbed through them many times, and dreamed of owning a Sears home.
