I have recently been told by an elderly neighbor that my house is a sears catalog home. I had also been told this by the previous home owner that we purchased it from. How would i go about making a positive identification to be certain. I have some old sears catalogs from the same year and the styles are right on. Although my home has alot of custom features, 1/2 bath on first floor, crown molding throughout, kitchen walls and ceiling are original ceramic tile, brick exterior with front and rear porches. We bought the house with intention of fixing up. It had been neglected for some years. Please advise. I don’t want to do anything that would harm the value or take away from its possible historical importance.
