The Shingle Style by Christine G. H. Franck
We are pleased to link to Christine G.H. Franck’s website, where she has a great list of historic American house styles illustrated by her own sketches, as shown here.
An excerpt from the Shingle Style post: ‘Working in the common American material of wood, reinterpreting what they considered to be our only historic American architecture, that of colonial New England, and reacting to the unstudied Victorian revival styles, this early generation of trained architects created a new style which architectural historian Vincent Scully called “a mode of building…which was specifically American.”’
