And to keep this in Virginia: here is a website I found that lists Sears kit homes that are near the W&OD Trail from Arlington all the way out to Purcellville. That would be a fun excursion while walking the trail. Sears and Roebuck Kit Houses near the W&OD Trail in No. Va.

I love that all those houses have been so carefully restored. Its nice to see a slice of history being preserved.

They're all very beautiful! How I wish they still built homes that look like, well, homes.

I so appreciate your post. Thank you for brightening my day! I will keep an eye out for these lovely structures.

I am with you on that -- it would be so wonderful to live in a house of those style and sizes. So much character.

I'm sure you have a lot more kit homes than what I found heretofore.

Here are a few of Sears most popular designs.

The first one looks almost exactly like my house. Except I have elephantine columns, a different interior layout, and it's longer.
