You can do a search from here.

I have always had a fascination for the cottages and bungalows they sold.

Natch, that was my first search. (I searched all catalogs on the word bungalow.)

1911 Fall Catalog


The 3 houses for $676 each in the lower left corner? $676 in 1911 works out to $16,511.28 today, which is still a bargain. Of course, you'd have to add some more for wiring, but still...

The materials for a five room bungalow (sans bathroom) in the Spring 1915 catalog cost $541.

Photobucket

Today's equivalent price - $11,715.11.

That price included cedar shingles.

Some of those houses are still standing today...
