Minimal Traditional

Although some may argue that these houses have no "style" whatsoever, this simple design was appropriate for a country recovering from a Great Depression and anticipating World War II.

Features Include:

  • Small with minimal decorations
  • Low or moderately pitched roof
  • Minimal eaves and roof overhang
  • Side gable, often with one front-facing cross gable
  • Front door entrance under the front cross gable
  • One story, with an attic story
  • Shutters are common
  • Exterior siding of wood, brick, or a mix of sidings
  • Small fireplace and chimney
