  1. I believe I own a Sears Kit Home: the Colchester (brick form of the Lewiston), built in 1930 in Dearborn.

    1. Mary - Drop us a line at with more details. We would love to hear more about your home!

  2. I have a Sears kit home. The Vallonia (Model Nos. P13049A, P13049B); ($1,465 to $2,479) I live in Meriden

    1. Can you send an e-mail to with more details? Thanks!

  3. Great presentation tonight! Sorry we didn't get all the way to the end. You'll have to come back. I used to have a 1920s frame bungalow in Detroit built by the former owners husband and father. I always wondered if it was a kit house.

    1. Thank you for joining us tonight! We're sorry we didn't get to show all of the other houses in the area. Hopefully, we'll be able to do a "part 2" where we show some of the other kit houses around town. We'll also share some of those here so stop back to see what's new. As far as the house in Detroit, if it's still around, leave us an address and we can take a look.

  4. I own a Greenville in northern Kentucky
