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.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are not complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
