1935 Sears Catalog: The Dover

There is a certain warmth and “hominess” about a wooden house—a readiness to receive the stamp of its owner’s personality and an ability to adapt itself to its environment. It answers the needs of well-to-do or modest builder and holds it own in town or country.

The Dover is an Americanized English type Colonial story and a half cottage with a convenient floor plan. The massive chimney helps to “tie in” the front gable and the cowled roof lines help to give a compact appearance. The exterior walls are planned for clear bevel siding but will look equally attractive if shingles are used. In either case, we suggest light colors of paint or stain, in contrast to dark shutters, chimney and weathered roof.

The shutters on the front windows are batten type, to match the batten type circle head front door.

Our home building service will furnish every detail to help you have a home as attractive as the Dover. We guarantee quality and quantity, and our ready cut system of construction conserves your building dollars.

The Floor Plan

From the terrace, the front door opens into a vestibule which has a large coat closet for outer wraps. Handy for your guests. The living room and dining room extend across the entire front of the house and are connected with a plaster arch, also used from living room to vestibule and hall. Plenty of windows assure bright and cheerful rooms and a pleasant outlook.

Most every family can use a first floor bedroom – if not for the family, a guest likes a little privacy from the Master bedrooms. Many have converted this room into a combination library and den and still have a “spare” bedroom available by putting a “rollaway” bed in the closet. Note that the semi-open stairs also open into the kitchen – a step-saving convenience. The kitchen will accommodate cabinets quoted in options. The second floor contains two large bedrooms and the bath is above average size. Linen storage and good closets. Fill out a blank for complete delivered price.
