The Modern Home Division of Sears, Roebuck and Co. has the distinction of furnishing over 100,000 homes to American home builders. From the inception of this department, our corps of architects, engineers and home experts have been ever watchful for new ideas in materials, design, space and labor saving features and equipment. Each design contains the maximum space at the lowest cost.
In the Hammond, we present the always popular five room bungalow in a new guise, up to date outside and in, with beauty and distinction seldom found in houses of this size and remarkably low cost. In sturdy “Honor Bilt” construction, with high quality guaranteed materials, it will make the finest kind of an investment.
The main walls are to be covered with brick and the gables with wide siding. Dark face brick with stained siding would be attractive, but common brick whitewashed and white painted gables would be just as beautiful. There is always a fascination in a home with the interesting details the Hammond possesses.
Floor Plan. The front vestibule and coat closet are lighted by a casement sash. Another closet is tucked into the corner of the large living room, which is 20 ft. by 11 ft. 6 in. An attractive fireplace, and windows grouped on two walls make this a delightful room. The kitchen is out of sight, only the dining room with its double windows being visible. The kitchen, with cross ventilation and convenient grade entrance, has cabinets (furnished at option price) grouped around the sink and the window above it. The side entrance is convenient for drive and saves garden space in back.
A hall to the right of the living room leads to bath, linen closet, and two good size corner bedrooms, each having a closet, windows on two sides and good wall space.
Ceiling height on the first floor is 8 ft. 6 in. The basement is 7 ft. from floor to joists. The house is 34 ft. 11 in. wide and 31 ft. 5 in. deep on the bedroom side. It can be built on a lot 41 ft. or more in width, but requires 45 ft. with side drive.
