House Style of the Month: Homestead or Farmhouse

by | Dec 5, 2014 | St Cloud Custom Home Design

Be sure to check out the Design Team’s house of the month for December: the Homestead. Sometimes referred to as American Country or Farmhouse, this style home was brought to the Midwest from 1850-1920, influenced mainly by Victorian and Colonial homes.

Most often, these homes would start small and as more space was needed, homesteaders would add to their homes. Features include 6” lap siding, double hung windows, small panes of glass, gable roofs and most distinguishable, their wrap around porches.
