  1. i'll love to post a picture of my home I live in hatchery rd. waterford michigan and is a beautiful home , not sure but i think is a dover from 1928

    1. Feel free to contact us at the e-mail listed here:


      Also, if you didn't know, we'll be doing a presentation in Waterford in April on kit houses. More information is available here:


  2. Fun to find the home I grew up in listed here. It was a Walton model. Enjoyed my visit to your blog. Kudos. And, thanks.

  3. I live in one of these kit homes. It isn't a Wardway Berkley, but rather a Gordon Vantine Rose Glen built in 1929.

    1. Thanks for letting us know! Gordon-Van Tine supplied all the houses for Montgomery Ward and the Berkley and Rose Glen are almost identical in design. As we see more Ward houses, I generally list these identical designs as being from Ward unless I learn otherwise. If you can contact me directly with your address, I can update the listing.

    2. 2590 Hallman & 2700 Hallman are both Gordon Vantine Rose Glen homes

    3. Thank you! I'll update the list. I would love to learn more about these houses.
