Custom Home Styles
Colonial Home — It’s history dates back to the founding of our country. Colonial homes usually have two or three stories, fireplaces, and brick, wood and/or siding exteriors. The classic floor plan has the kitchen, dining room and living room on the first floor and the bedrooms on the second floor.
Victorian Home — This home is named for the era (Victorian – 1840 – 1900) when the architecture was introduced and most popular. These homes are known for romantic detail and abundant detail. Victorian homes often feature a steeply pitched roof and an asymmetrical facade with a partial or full-width front porch.
Cape Cod — This home is one of the oldest in the U.S., dating back to 1675. The Cape Cod had a resurgence in the 1900s and is still popular today. The dwelling typically is one and a half stories. This style features a steep roof line and dormers. The capes often feature detached garages, but contemporary versions often have attached garages.
Craftsman-style Home — This house style dates back to 1905. Originally designed as a bungalow, the style has morphed some, but still features a cozy feel and lots of exposed wood. The exterior often has a low-pitched roof, with wide eave overhangs, exposed roof rafters, decorative beams under the gables, and porches framed by columns.
Log Home — This one is self descriptive. It’s a staple of the early U.S. Today’s Log Home still retain a rustic feel, but are more luxurious than the one-room versions that once littered The Plains of the old west. The layouts tend to favor those of the Cape Cod, mentioned above.
Duplex — We build duplexes for many wanting to invest in real estate. The building can be two rental properties, or the owner can live in one side and rent the other. The positive cash flow from the rental side often offsets the amount needed out of the owner’s pocket for the mortgage.
