1935 Sears Honor-Bilt Homes

1935 Sears Catalog: The Dayton

The designers of this home kept in mind a plan which would give the maximum livable floor area at the lowest possible cost. It is a typical American home with a semi bungalow appearance on account of the wide overhanging eaves—suitable for a narrow city lot or in the country. The exterior is planned to be covered with clear bevel siding with clear Cypress exterior trim and moldings. The quality of all materials furnished for “Honor Bilt” homes enjoys a national reputation and the fact that over 100,000 homes have been built by our famous ready cut system, testifies for the labor saving features. The large front porch, size 18 ft. by 8 ft. can be screened for summer comfort and will be appreciated by every home owner.

“I can truthfully recommend every dollar’s worth of material I received from you people, to be first class in every respect. Upon comparing prices, I find I saved over $1,000.00 in buying my home from Sears, and I got better material. My heating plant can’t be beat. I will gladly show anyone through my home who is interested, and explain it to them.”—Walter Brumitt, Bradley, Ill.

The Floor Plans

The living room size 19 ft. 3 in, wide by 13 ft. 5 in. deep in depth, has a large window in each outside wall. It is well balanced for wall space and the semi open stairs along the right wall is designed attractive newel and railing.

The wide arch opening from the living room to the dining room gives these two rooms the appearance of one large “L” shaped room, easy to furnish and decorate.
