1935 Sears Honor Bilt Homes: The Franklin

During the past two or three years, there has been a real demand for new ideas in attractive low cost homes. Hundreds of American architects have contributed plans which they consider the ideal in low cost and convenience. Cellarless homes, flat roofs, steel panels and new untried materials have all been offered as a solution to cut costs with little or no success.

The Franklin modern home is one of our newer suggestions and its immediate acceptance by home builders indicates that it will be one of our most popular designs.

One of the features that makes for economy is that the basement is planned under the bedroom portion only and requires a minimum excavation. You save about 40 per cent of your foundation cost and at the same time have plenty of space for recreation room, heater and fuel room. The recreation room can be converted into a third bedroom or motor room.

The regular floor level contains living room, kitchen, rear hall and two closets. A half flight of open stairs with only five risers brings you to the next level containing two large bedrooms, bath and closets with practically the same privacy as you would have in a two full story house.

The exterior walls are covered with clear bevel siding and all millwork and other material is of the best grade for the purpose.

Let us send you a large planograph illustration and complete details about this marvelous low cost home.
