In their own way, houses with Craftsman-style design elements often managed their own form of ebullient excess such as Modern Home No. 264B155. Modest half-timbering in the gables, exposed rafters, knee braces, and gable-end ridge finials combine to create an optimistic facade. An open floor plan with sensible access points from room to room, plus two second-story balconies, make this a pleasant, cheerful house. An earlier version (No. 155 c. 1911) of this plan is shown in Houses by Mail: A Guide to Houses from Sears, Roebuck and Companywith considerably less detail.
