Recently, the Seattle Times published a piece about a home on Capital Hill in Seattle. This home, like most in the neighborhood is beautifully well kept, and has stood the test of time. Although originally built as a single family residence, it has since been renovated to hold 11 apartments. What makes this property unique though, is that it was ordered from a catalog! Sears Catalog Homes were just that. You could browse floor plans in the catalog, decide which you liked, and they’d ship all of the materials to you so that you could build the home yourself! Pretty wild!
