Style of the Month...Tudor

The Design Team 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 want to consider our design of the month, the Tudor.


The Tudor originated in England in the 15th century during the reign of the house of Tudor. There were not many of these houses in the U.S. to start with, unless they belonged to the very wealthy.

  • 2 ½ to 3 stories
  • stone, brick, or stucco
  • chimney pots
  • slate roof
  • 8/12 to 12/12 slope roof
  • not symmetrical
  • casement windows
  • small panes of glass (square or diamond)
  • many chimneys
  • fort-like appearance
  • very large house
  • arch-type door with many panels
  • small overhang or none

Home Style of the Month: Bungalow

Bungalow-Remodel-StCloudThe History of the Bungalow Home:

The peak of the bungalow popularity was from 1900 to 1930. It was built mostly by "do it yourself type people," who ordered a set of plans from some company, or they did their own plans. Some people say it was where the rambler got its start.

  • Mostly double-hung windows
  • 1 to 1 1/2 stories
  • 6" lap siding, stucco or whatever the person wanted that was building the house
  • Open ends on rafters
  • 4/12 to 8/12 roof slope
  • 1' to 2' overhangs
  • Most of the time they were small in size
  • All types of doors
  • Large porch posts
