The Winsom

1916 Sterling System Homes

1916 Sterling WinsomThis classic cottage bungalow plan offers the home owner the large porch, hipped roof, and low slung profile seen in the Prairie School designs. The Winsom plan is one of Sterling's more modern plans with a central hall leading to two of the three bedrooms.

1916 Sterling Winsom PlanThough modest in size and style, it was a respectable 1064 sq. ft. affording a small family both shared and private space.

The cost to purchase this home was $1044 or 50% down and payments for two years at $22.84 a month.

Given that the average income in 1915 was about $600 a year, such a home was well within the means of any buyer with a lot and the energy to build it.
