Shingle Style Homes
By; Haley Combs
In many shingle style homes you see that they incorporate different types of towers and window shapes. Now you don't see as many actual towers as you do rounded spaces to create the look of a semi-tower space. Their windows also come in various forms, using multiple shapes and sizes. The more modern renditions of shingle style homes include large porches with classical columns for supports.
The shingle style home pulls most of its influence from housing style such as, Victorian and Queen Anne. Architects who designed these homes preferred asymmetry and free forms, building the houses and pieces of art. This style still remains a high-fashion style and was never accepted as a common housing type.
