Sterling homes offered an economical home of high quality by doing all their milling off site, and shipping the precut framing to the construction site for assembly. Some people elected to assemble their houses themselves, and Sterling supplied directions for those who wanted to do that. This pattern book illustrated dozens of Sterling homes with floor plans so that customers could select their ideal house. It's unusual to have a pattern book in color. This is a nice snapshot of home design in the 1950s.
