House Style of the Month…Classic Colonial

by | Mar 29, 2016 | St Cloud Custom Home Design

The Design Team (St. Cloud, MN) offers St. Cloud and all other areas stunning home plans in a wide variety of styles. If you’re looking for a classic design that never goes out of style, you may be interested in our design of the month, the Classic Colonial.


The Classic Colonial is based on classic Greek architecture. The style was introduced by Thomas Jefferson, who used it to begin building Monticello in 1772, which was completed in 1803. It is widely believed that there is very little difference between classic colonial, southern colonial, and Greek revival styles.
