Another Sears #118 (Clyde) was recently shared with me. This Sears #118 owner sent me several interior photos that I was able to match up with Sears millwork. I find that to be a lot of fun! He also sent me a photo of a Sears shipping label.
If you aren’t familiar with the Sears #118 you might start here with my original blog on the Sears #118. I show several examples of a #118 aka Clyde. And that’s only half of what I have either located or that readers have sent in to me!
I hope you enjoy the photos of this Sears #118. Special thanks to Ron Haven of Greenfield, Iowa for sharing his Sears 118 that he has been working on for several years. Ron explained that when he purchased the house it had fallen in to disrepair. Repairs and restoration seem to be coming along very well!

The Sears #118 was one of 40 modern home plans offered by Sears in 1908. Did this feature from the Fall 1908 Sears Merchandise catalog make it popular?

It’s rare that we get to see all sides of these homes. What a special treat to see all sides of a Sears #118! Now, let’s have a look inside as well!

John Albert Deremo 1877-1942 , owner, was a farmer. He lived in this house with his aunt, Ida Deremo 1865-1945. Neither married and no children.
Thanks to Ron Haven for sharing his Sears #118 (Clyde) and all of the wonderful photos!
