i American Style Homes

Style Description: American residential architecture has largely been driven by our European roots; primarily Western Europe ? England, France, Spain, and Italy. Most of our house styles are derivatives of early houses built across America when it was being settled and throughout its infancy. There, of course, have been some styles that are considered American but if looked at closely most still have roots from Western Europe such as Greek revival, Italianate, Victorians, Arts and Crafts and others. A few can be called true American styles such as the Shingle style, Stick style, Prairie style, Craftsman and others.
