For a time, Sears Roebuck, pioneer of the catalog in your mailbox, produced entire houses, available by mail order. This model, The Alhambra, with its stucco exterior and unusual roofline, was inspired by Spanish and Mission motifs popular in the southwest. This particular example, built in 1925 in Cheverly, Maryland, had a few minor alterations made on site, and one major one, an addition to the north.

You are purchasing large format architectural blueprints, 4 sheets measuring 18"x24". The color page from the Sears catalog is provided in this description as reference but is not included in the printed order.

The prints you are purchasing are crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. Any photos shown in the description are informational only and are NOT included in your purchase. The original, public domain drawings were prepared by the Historical American Building Survey and rest in the Library of Congress.

IMPORTANT - IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as will be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. Nor are they designed to meet current building codes. These are measured drawings of actual historic American homes that provide accurate design information about these homes. Your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary.
