How many times have you driven down a neighborhood and pointed to a house that you liked but didn’t know what the style was called? Wonder no more! Here is an overview of the most popular styles of homes, like the Shingle Style, which you can recognize by its shingled style siding and large windows.
Shingle Style (1875-1910)
This style of home is originally is from New England and differs from the rest of the Victorian style homes of the period because of its lack of elaborate ornamentation.
