Sears began offering house plans in 1908. The first Sears Plan Catalog was published in 1908. According to the Sears Archives the first bill of sale for a complete “modern home” was in 1909. I know that isn’t accurate because the homeowner of the Sears 132 in Colorado Springs shared with me copies of all documentation with exception of the original blueprints which no longer exist.
Because of a few testimonials from 1908 I have more Sears Modern Homes built in 1908 to share.
