i Dutch Style Homes

Style Description: The Dutch have not had a huge impact on architectural styles around the world but the styles they have given us are very beautiful and have been popular in certain areas of the United States for many years. The Dutch colonial style seen primarily in the Northeast US can however be found in most cities across the United States. They are immediately identifiable by their use of the Gambrel roofs and were usually done in Dutch lap siding or stone. The Dutch Caribbean house style with its curvilinear parapet gables and tile roofs have been popular along the Gulf coast for some time now and look as though it will remain so into the future.
