This home was inspired by a real home plan from the 1935 Sears Honor-Built Catalog. I have done my best to update the homes to our modern standards, however, you may find that some of the homes in this collection have smaller or fewer bathrooms, kitchens, garages, or less open living spaces. This is because I would like to preserve the integrity of the original floor plans.

What the architect had to say about this home in 1935:

"This type of Cape Cod home is one of the first designs built by the early New England settlers. Homes built over a hundred years ago grow old gracefully and still retain a certain warmth and beauty. It seems to have many friends in both urban and suburban areas. The Attleboro achieves distinction with its fine doorway, dormers, shuttered windows and correct architectural details. No “gingerbread” to get out of date. Outside walls are shown of Cedar shingles, but will look equally attractive with siding."

The first floor lavatory opening off the rear hall, in addition to complete second floor bath, adds greatly to the value. Closets for outer wraps handy to front and rear doors. Central hall with semi-open stairs, large living room, dining room and exceptional kitchen, completes the first floor plan.

Two large bedrooms and one smaller one... off the upstairs hall. Each bedroom is well lighted and contains good wall space..."

About the 1935 Sears Honor-Built Homes:

"Honor Bilt Sears homes were known throughout the US as well-made, comfortable, and affordable... styles range from bungalows and small Tudor style cottages to homes influenced by some of the modern trends of the times. The Honor Bilt homes were part of a profitable business model shared by Aladdin and other home manufacturers. Each home was packaged pre-cut and then shipped to the location. The homeowner could literally build his own home from the materials sent. Instructions were included... [Now] these kit homes are being sought by home buyers for their charm and quality."
