Kit Homes 101

In today's podcast, our host Ciera and Maurice talk about the final installation of this month's alternative homes series, kit homes. Kit homes are mail-order houses, delivered in parts by a manufacturer and stick built on the property by either you or a contractor. This up-and-coming home building fad dates back to the early 20th century and exploded in popularity during the baby boom. Tune in to find out more about the new explosion of kit homes and why it could be a great option for you. Please visit us at, on Instagram and Twitter @wilsonwealth and on Facebook for more information about us and the company.



“Right exactly, basically you pick a design you want from a specific manufacturer, and they just come deliver all the precut materials and you put together your dream home.” - Ciera

“Over 100,000 kit homes were built between 1908- 1940, and according to the University of Maryland archivist, Sears was the biggest kit home manufacturer from that era.” - Ciera


“This could be a great option for people who like DIY or have the time to put in the work considering the money you'll save; however, my only advice is to know yourself and what you can handle before you commit to this because you are still building a house from the ground up which is a big task.” -Maurice
