1935 Sears Honor Bilt Homes: The Wilmore

A five room bungalow type design. One of the most popular of all American houses. In presenting this economical home, the Wilmore, we not only offer a compact plan of which every foot of floor space has been used to the best advantage, but have also worked out an attractive exterior along the lines commonly known as “Americanized English.” The exterior walls of this home are planned to be covered with clear Red Cedar 24 inch shingles, laid with ten inch exposure. The walls are relieved of any suggestion of plainness by the careful grouping of large well balanced windows, circle head batten type front door with batten type shutters to match.

The specifications include one dip coat and one brush coat of Super quality shingle stain and we suggest using a light gray color with ivory or white trim, and dark brown or green for shutters and front door. All exterior moldings, trim and casings are of clear Cypress, the “Wood External,” to be covered with three coats of Sears Master Mixed paint.

This type home requires many pieces of material cut to special miter and detail. This work is all accurately handled in our factory by special machinery and saves you hundreds of dollars in constructing your home.

The Floor Plan

The entrance over the front terrace is into the vestibule which gives the desired protection and also furnishes a convenient place for hanging outer wraps.

The living room is 15 ft. 2 in. by 12 ft. 5 in., is well lighted by three large windows in the front and side walls. A large front gable covers the projection of the dining room located at the left and connected with the living room by a large plastered arch opening.

The kitchen is sure to make friends among housewives for it has a compact practical arrangement for range, table, refrigerator, sink and cabinets. Cross ventilation is another feature which will be appreciated.

Two well balanced bedrooms with large closets, and with bathroom between, make up the balance of the first floor plan. A small hall gives the necessary privacy to this part of the house and contains a closet for linen.

The size of the Wilmore home is 38 ft. wide and 24 ft. deep and can be built on a 45 ft. lot. Height of ceilings is 8 ft. 3 in. with 7 ft. basement planned to be excavated under the entire building and to contain furnace, laundry, fruit and fuel storage and plenty of space for recreation room, if desired.
