      Sterling System Homes by International Mill & Timber

      In addition to Aladdin, another notable manufacturer of kit homes was International Mill & Timber (IMT) located in Bay City, Michigan. In 1916, they published a catalog of houses representative of the prevailing American taste in homes. A range of styles is shown including the traditional, but very popular, Colonial Revival and its kin, many permutations of the Craftsman-style bungalow, and a nifty English Tudor designed to be added onto as one's finances allowed. We've published about 15 different homes that provide a taste of IMT's range.

      Ready Built Homes by Fenner Manufacturing

      The heyday of kit homes was from 1910 to 1930. Dozens of companies, large and small, jumped on the bandwagon. In addition to the national players like Aladdin and Sears, there were many small companies with regional markets. J. H. Fenner opened his lumber business in Portland, Oregon in 1912 and by 1916 offered his Ready Built houses as kits. The company apparently did reasonably well for about ten years, moving in about 1918 to a new factory with both rail and river access in North Portland. However, the company either sold out or folded by 1928. We provide small window into Pacific Northwest market with examples of about 20 homes from the 1921 catalog.
