Modern Home No. 264B226

1916 Sears Roebuck Modern Homes

A side pergola, with top beams matching the exposed verge boards, covers an unusual secondary entrance for this plan. The primary entrance opens into the living room. A third service entrance opens to the kitchen. Unlike many bungalow plans this house has a living room that is separated from the dining by the hall, from which the stairs lead to the second floor. A shed roof over the full-width porch is repeated over the two upstairs windows on the front gable.

In the 1923 catalog, this plan is renamed the Roanoke. Plan changes include eliminating the hall access to the kitchen and combining the two front bedrooms (with the awkward access) into a single large bedroom. An earlier version (No. 226 from 1912), shown in Houses by Mail: A Guide to Houses from Sears, Roebuck and Company, is much simpler stylistically.
