Built in 1907? It is NOT a Sears House!

Why do all the wrong things go viral?

This 1907-built farm house (shown below) is being promoted online as a Sears Kit Home and there’s so much wrong with that. And that post - with an accompanying photo - has gone viral on Facebook.

Sears didn’t offer their first “Modern Homes” catalog until 1908. And there’s this: There’s nothing about this house that has any resemblance to anything offered by any kit home company.


NOT a Sears House!

NOT a Sears House, and yet this image is spreading far and wide via the internet.


Dolly and I get exasperated sometimes...

Dolly reacts to the picture above.

    Well Duh! That’s obviously a Frank Lloyd Wright house.

    I think, perhaps, if you could add the dates (1908-whenever) under your banner “Sears Modern Homes” it would go a long way to correcting this issue.

    One glance at that, and folks should be auto-corrected.

    The first thing that occurred to me was that this was quite a farmhouse for its time.

    It seems rather large!

    First I am laughing at the picture of Dolly banging her head on the table and then read Dale’s witty comment and now I am doubled over in laughter!
