The Sears company sold tens of thousands of kit homes from the early 1900s to 1940. You'd order it by mail from their catalog, have the raw pieces delivered to you by train, then build it!

As detailed in the Indianapolis Star, a couple in Noblesville, Indiana, recently completed a remodel on just such a kit house with beautiful results.

Check out this article and note the Victorian style wall sconces and antique style chandelier.
