1935 Sears Catalog: The Lynnhaven

What picturesque possibilities can be hidden behind a few brick, stone, sacks of cement, a pile of lumber and millwork. It all depends on how much thought is given to the design, but the result desired, is a home with an attractive exterior and a conveniently arranged interior. All “Honor Bilt” homes are thoroughly tested to be sure that they are architecturally correct and economical, also durable and convenient.

In presenting the Lynnhaven, we feel that we are offering a home which will solve a problem for many home builders. The graceful way in which the front projection ties itself the main building and the attractive entrance makes this home one that will be admired by many.

The exterior walls are planned to be covered with our Royal Red Cedar 24-inch shingles, laid with wide exposure and to be finished with one dip coat and one brush coat of Super grade shingle stain, color for which we suggest light grey.
