About My Bungalow


We've been told by previous owners that this is a Sears and Roebuck Bungalow home. It is in Piggott, Arkansas. We do not know the history of the house.

Favorite Details


We love the huge porch on the front of the house. We love the woodwork in the house. The fireplace is great.

Editor's Note


With an inviting porch tucked under a large front gable, this home looks a lot like Sears Modern Home No. 165. Maybe it is! Or, maybe a local builder imitated the popular Sears & Roebuck mail order catalog house plan.

If your house came from Sears, there will probably be some physical clues such as numbers stamped on the joists. You'll have fun exploring! Here are some tips: About Your Mail Order House.

Lessons Learned


We've just bought and moved in to our house so there haven't been any size issues yet.
