Antique Homes

By Sablemable aka Jan

I found this web site a few years ago while searching for mid-century modern and bookmarked it immediately.

At www.antiquehome.org, one can go literally crazy with joy over all of the house plans they offer for your viewing pleasure.

Antiquehome.org has collections of house plans dating back to 1903 and up to 1971.  There are plans from Sears, Garlinghouse, Radford, Sterling, Alladin and National.  Let me show you.

THE 1916 SEARS-ROEBUCK “AUBURN” FLOOR PLANS

 

THE COVER OF THE 1956 NATIONAL HOMES MAGAZINE 

 

AND THE FLOOR PLANS OF THE FEATURED HOME

 

THE COVER OF THE 1961 ALLADIN READI-CUT HOMES MAGAZINE

 

 

THE 1961 ALLADIN READI-CUT FLOOR PLANS OF “THE SHADY LANE.”

 

Antiquehome.org has a blog, a resource library and a bookstore.  They are always looking for photos and information on homes from their viewers.  Some of you who have “finished” MCM homes should send your story and photos into Antique Homes. 

Stop by their web site and check them out!
