Photographed Homes May Include Customer Requested Plan Modifications
This is a colonial style home. Our Colonial home designs typically have an accentuated front door (usually centered), perhaps with a decorative crown and supported by pillasters or extended forward and supported by slender columns to form an entry porch. Doors commonly have overhead fan lights or sidelights. The facade normally shows symmetrically balanced windows. The foot print of the home is typically a simple, rectangular shape.
Country house plans are similar to farmhouse style plans. They are usually two story with a covered front or wrap around porch. Quite colonial, the footprint is often boxy or rectangular shaped. Many country house designs feature a centred entryway with stacked single hung windows.
This home features in our Farmhouse collection. Farmhouse is a general term for the main house of a farm. It is a type of building or house which serves a residential purpose in a rural or agricultural setting. Most often, the surrounding environment will be a farm. Many farm houses are shaped like a T. The perpendicular section is referred to as the ell.
Our Shingle style home plans typically comprise homes with steeply pitched roof lines, and shingle covered walls. They also have a smooth surface appearance with little or no decoration. There is also usually a covered porch.
In the Shingle style, English influence was combined with the renewed interest in Colonial American architecture which followed the 1876 celebration of the Centennial.Architects emulated colonial houses' plain, shingled surfaces as well as their massing, whether in the simple gable of McKim Mead and White's Low House or in the complex massing of Kragsyde, which looked almost as if a colonial house had been fancifully expanded over many years. This impression of the passage of time was enhanced by the use of shingles. Some architects, in order to attain a weathered look on a new building, even had the cedar shakes dipped in buttermilk, dried and then installed, to leave a grayish tinge to the façade.
