I found this beautiful house on the Better Homes and Gardens website when I was just looking around on the internet.
The colonial style is considered one of the most popular in the history of the United States.
-- Usually two or three stories with high-pitched roof
-- One or more dormers
-- Massive chimney or chimneys
-- Narrow clapboard siding (sometimes brick)
-- Double-hung, multi-pane windows (usually in pairs) placed symmetrically on both sides of a central front door
-- Decorative crown over front door supported by pilasters or columns
Hm....wonder if I could find anything like this in the St. Louis area without paying a ton for it? Doubt it!
This was getting long, so I'm going to continue my house post in a future post.
