1935 Sears Catalog: The Gateshead

It is not likely that any man ever entered upon a home building program who did not first ask himself the question “Can I afford to build?”, and it is just as unlikely that any man of thrift ever built a home under normal conditions who did not wonder, when the last installment lifted the mortgage on his home, “How could I have afforded not to build?” The day of cancelled mortgage is an epochal day in the family history-  a day of triumph, for in most cases, the cancelled mortgage represents courage, thrift and sacrifice. You have a home instead of three or four thousand dollars in rent receipts. From this day on, life assumes a different aspect.

The Gateshead is an Americanized English type, particularly adaptable to narrow city lots. The living room size 17 ft. 8 in. by 11 ft. 6 in. has interesting details on the walls. Triple windows and arch on the front – French doors on the left and fireplace; stairs and arch on the inside walls. Dining room, kitchen and combination grade and cellar stairs complete the first floor.

Two large bedrooms, bath and four closets work out without waste space on the second floor.
