The Sterling System catalog produced by International Mill & Timber in 1916 offered many different house styles. The Pilgrim model is eclectic in its design, but charming in its appearance. The side-gabled roof covers the full width porch across the face of the building. French doors on both main floor and second floor balcony guarantee an abundance of natural light indoors. An open floor plan on the main floor assures a free flow between living spaces.
