New Home Exterior Style Descriptions


Here are short descriptions of some "typical" features you can expect to find in each of these home styles:

Traditional: Custom Home Builder Raleigh | NC Custom Homebuilders | Design Build Homes A traditional style home can refer several different design categories, such as Colonial, Cape Cod, and Ranch, depending on the region of the country.

Traditional style homes are simplistic and symmetrical - and are usually two stories.

They also tend to have large front porches and dormers.

Bungalow: Bungalow style homes can be defined by many different features depending on their location.

Bungalow homes in North Carolina have some similiar features to craftsman style homes.

One or 1.5 stories, front door open to living room, open concept floor plans with little wasted space, and fewer formal areas are a few common features.

Craftsman: The architecture of craftsman homes evoke feelings of permanence, of time-honored traditions, and old-world workmanship.

Simple lines inside and out, stone accents (front porches with stone base and tapered columns), and built-ins are a few characteristics.
