Home Style of the Month – Half Timber / Tudor Style

by | Sep 3, 2014 | St Cloud Custom Home Design

This month at The Design Team (St Cloud MN) we are talking about the Half Timber or more commonly known as the Tudor Style home. The history of the Tudor style houses were built in England about 1550 during Queen Elizabeth’s time. The second story sometimes overhung the first floor to get more space in the second floor.

Characteristics of the Tudor style home include:b2ap3_thumbnail_Half-Timber-1.jpg
