A Perfect Main Entry Step-by-Step

CHAPTER 1 Î DETERMINING HOUSE STYLE
In this section, you will evaluate your houses style.
Begin by determining the predominant style of your home.
Your home may very clearly be one style, or a combination of styles
(in which case you should choose the most prominent style).
Examples of the most common house styles.
COLONIAL STYLE
Floor plans feature a center hall with
living room on one side, dining room
on the other, kitchen and private
rooms in the back. Colonial design in-
cludes a symmetrical exterior styling,
multi-pane, double-hung windows with
shutters, dormers, central front doors,
shutters, and pilasters. The exteriors
are generally wood or brick.
VICTORIAN STYLE
.
Victorian floor plans are free form and
rambling, having features of brightly
painted exterior, wrap-around front porch
and detailed ornamental elements. Bay
windows, wide verandas, turrets, and
grand towers may be incorporated into a
Victorian plan. The floor plans are com-
posed of one or two levels having an
asymmetrical layout and an irregular roof-
line in which gables face several direc-
tions and roof pitches vary. Front doors
are four-paneled with no or narrow side-
lights, and windows are long and narrow,
sometimes with bays.
