1935 Sears Catalog: The Oxford

Lots of fun—this building a home. From the hour you decide to go ahead until you move in, each day brings its stimulating moment in watching your dream house come true. Of course there are times when the work seems to drag, but your impatience gives way to eager anticipation again when you wade through clean shavings and the fragrance of new wood and painting gets underway.

For many years the bungalow type home has been popular in all parts of this country. Successful designs with Colonial, English, or Spanish character are to found in the most restricted area. The Oxford house is a modern adaptation of English architecture and is meeting with success among home builders where convenience and beauty are wanted at a low cost.

The exterior walls are planned to be covered with 24-inch Royal Read Cedar shingles, one dip coat and one brush coat of Super quality shingle stain for finish. The treatment of the front gable with half timber and stucco relieves any suggestion of plainness.

The plan contains four well arranged rooms, living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, and bath. Every inch of space is used to the best advantage. The designer even thought about a handy place for your brooms at the top of the cellar stairs.
