Homes in a Box - Modern Homes from Sears Roebuck is a facsimile reproduction of the Sears Modern Homes catalog. It gives a nostalgic look at the more than one hundred home kits sold by Sears Roebuck in the early 1900s. These homes were offered either as simple kits with only the blueprints and bill-of-materials or as complete homes with all materials and finishes. The architectural styles ranged from simple bungalows to beautiful homes with a strong Frank Lloyd Wright influence. Much of this Wright influence can be traced to the proliferation of Wright homes in the Chicago area, Sears home base.Thousands of these homes are still standing and still providing shelter to families across the country. Many of them are unaware of the source of their home's design. This book will help them trace their architectural heritage. It will also be an invaluable tool to those looking to trace the architectural history of the American home. is a facsimile reproduction of the Sears Modern Homes catalog.
