Colonial Style

Colonial style homes offer a reflection of early American sensibility and simpler times. These homes emphasize economical craftsmanship rather than decorative detailing. There are few details and trim is narrow and not decorative.

  • Structure: Colonial homes are tall and narrow, a classic "Salt Box" structure
  • Exterior Doors: Entry systems are narrow and windowless with long, vertical panels
  • Windows: Usually 3 over 3 panes, sometimes 4 over 3 panes
  • Colors: Earth tones, gray, natural wood colors; Never white
