Colorado bungalows...who knew?

I just returned from a trip to Colorado and while there stumbled upon some great bungalows in the towns of Boulder and Loveland. One of the homeowners I talked to thought that many of the frame versions were Sears kit homes. After a visit to The Tattered Cover (a fine bookstore in Denver, check it out if you're there) I now own a copy of Small Houses of the Twenties, The Sears and Roebuck 1926 House Catalog. Watch for an upcoming WRBN meeting featuring photos of these bungalows with (hopefully) side-by-side comparisons of their catalog listings.
