The Sterlyn model offered by International Mill & Timber in their 1916 catalog was the epitome of the small, cozy homes that had gained tremendous popularity in the years before the first World War. With delightful Craftsman-style details in the modest bargeboard, knee braces, and decorative trim, it is a two-bedroom home that any small family would have cherished.
From our vantage point, the floor plan is odd with its Jack and Jill bathroom and bedroom access from the kitchen and livingroom. There is no space wasted on hallways, though it does make you wonder exactly how they might have arranged a tub, toilet, and sink in the bathroom which was just 7'-9" x 6'-0" with two doors.
