House Style

This is a list of styles in residential construction.

This list predominantly refers to American architectural styles. While there are many well preserved architectural styles across the United States, some older American houses have been renovated or additions have been constructed, often disguising their origins. A Federal house may end up with Greek Revival and/or Queen Anne veneers. It may also end up with vinyl siding, hiding all aspects of style except the basic structure. To muddy the waters further, revival styles sometimes have revivals. The Queen Anne style was itself, an adulteration of previous styles – the 19th-century version of Post-Modern. Many homes will not fit into a single style category. Thus, this list is not definitive and lacks full representation of earlier prehistoric and historic times. Source:
