Colonial Style House .jpg

Colonial homes evolved from English Cottages to what would eventually become the “Cape Cod” style. These homes were built out of wood “clapboard” siding and had small paned windows. It has been said that these designs aided a family through harsh and confining winters. Two story versions of these homes were called the “New England Large” and were 2-1/2 story residences. Designs were a classical box design and gained the adoring nickname “salt box”.
