Sears Kit Houses with Andrew & Wendy Mutch

November 16, 2022 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

In the early 20th Century, kit houses were the ultimate “Do It Yourself” project for thousands of homeowners. While Sears Roebuck is the best known of the manufacturers of kit houses, Michigan was the home for three of the largest kit house companies in the country. Join Andrew and Wendy Mutch, Sears house owners and kit house researchers, as they present the fascinating history of kit houses. From first-hand accounts of customers, you’ll learn how they ordered, financed and in many cases, built their own homes. Their presentation will include a photographic tour of kit houses from companies like Sears and Aladdin that still stand in Downriver communities.
