In our section of the exhibit, you'll see examples of kit homes located in Royal Oak including those from Aladdin, Sears and Wardway. Wendy put together a series of models highlighting the process of building a kit house. You'll also be able to see examples of actual kit house catalogs and blueprints from a Sears house. We also put together a binder of all of the kit houses that we've identified in Royal Oak, most of which have been authenticated via mortgage or sales records, well over 60 houses in total. I've included a couple of photos showing what's on display. If you stop in, let the museum staff know we sent you there!
