I'm afraid I don't know the model but we did find an article about the home which dated it to a 1928 Sears catalog.

The siding was 8-1/4" with an 7" exposure. The fascia is 8" nominal, 7.5" actual.

It's been quite awhile since we did this project but I believe it was a 6" nominal (5.5" actual) trim with back banding. Here's a closeup.

I will anxiously await the answers along with you. I too am guessing, looks like Benjamin Moore historic palate.

The Shabby Nest
Benjamin Moore's Collector's Item is similar to the main color of the house. Try Benjamin Moore's Smoldering Red and Fraser Fir for similar trim colors.

Not really a question - Check the beams in the basement for numbers. Also go to searsarchives.com to see if you can get her to verify and identify it is a sears home. There are a lot if resources out there!

A Sears Craftsman??? - A "Sears Craftsman" SMH............unreal. A nice craftsman style bungalow yes but it's not from Sears. Sears Craftsman is NOT an architectural style it was a trademark name Sears purchased in 1927, or there abouts, and gave to their line of tools. There is NO Sears Craftsman house.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Kit Houses Stand the Test of Time
Kit houses came in many different sizes, styles and types. All of the material for this Craftsman kit house would have been ordered through the retailer's catalog and delivered to site by rail and truck.
Earthy colors. Craftsman homes are often painted in a nature-inspired palette of browns and greens to help the low-profile bungalows blend seamlessly with their surroundings. Despite the mostly muted palettes, one or two contrasting colors are typically used to highlight architectural features like trim or decorative supports. Put your best foot forward. Regardless of the style of your home, painting architecture features a contrasting color is a great way to highlight your home's best features.
Laura Gaskill added this to How to Research Your Home's History
A special note for owners of kit homes. Kit homes sold through catalogs were once a popular and affordable option for new homeowners in America. If you discover that your home was built as a kit house from the old Sears catalog, your first stop should be the Sears Archives, where you can find photographs of all of the original Sears kit home designs and floor plans. This can also be a great help in determining if your home really is a Sears home. If paint colors are what you are after, there is a list of ones that were used on the original Sears homes, along with modern equivalents, available from Old House Journal.Of course, while Sears was one of the most popular, it was not the only manufacturer of kit houses — see Kit Houses Stand the Test of Time for more info on kit homes.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: See What Defines a Craftsman Home
As I mentioned earlier, you could once order a kit (in this case from Sears) and have the entire house sent to your site for assembly. And you thought Ikea was complex!Joking aside, buyers of kit homes could take on the construction themselves or employ contractors to build them. Most were built near railroad depots, as by train was normally the method of shipment. Notice here how the details are simpler in comparison to the other examples. The form and overall impression maintain the Craftsman character.

Colors are relaxing and would likely not show pollen and mildew which are common in spring time north Florida. I also like the slight color in trim that creates a little interest and yet yields a nice contrast. Love that plants pop and play a roll in overall color pallet.
