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

Call the Design Team (St. Cloud, MN) today to discuss whether the Tudor style may be the perfect one for you. Remember, the Design Team designers are right on staff to custom-tailor any design to better suit your needs. We look forward to drawing you in!
