The Montrose

1916 Sterling system Homes

It's not much of a surprise that the Montrose, offered in Sterling's 1916 catalog, bears a striking resemblance to the Aladdin Forsyth model (renamed the Plymouth in 1920). There was a significant amount of cross-pollination among the Bay City kit home manufacturers.

That said, the Montrose has a more modern floor plan than its competitor. True, the only way to get to the back bedroom is awkward by contemporary standards, but it makes use of every square inch of space. The livingroom has a fireplace and with the high chimney wall windows, we imagine International Mill & Timber was able to sell flanking bookcases easily to provide storage in this tiny house.
