Of the houses Sears advertised in Hodgson's The Steel Square in 1916, few exhibited the degree of Craftsman-style shown in Modern Home No. 264B250. Later called the Ashmore, this plan had a handsome entry with clustered pillars on battered piers, a pergola and terrace off the dining room, beamed ceilings, and an inglenook in the fireplace end of the livingroom. It was a top-of-the-line plan and materials would have run $1608 in 1916 for this home, which was about 1600 sq. ft. of living space (or $1 a square foot). Gotta love the price.
