Hi, Jeff. Sears did sell mail order houses starting about that time and you can sometimes find info in the reprints os old Sears catalogs. There have been several books written on this subject also and you can check the major booksellers.
But remember that just as you can find house plans in magazines today that get built in many different parts of the country, the same thing happened back then. If you see a subdivision today, you will probably see many houses that were built to the same plan or it's mirror image. This kind of thing has been going on for a long time.
