More typically rectangular with a symmetrical facade, the Colonial house was a popular house style from the late 1800ís into the 1950ís. The Colonial home style is a symbol of American patriotism and need for simplicity.
The Colonial House is generally 2 to 3 stories tall with a gabled roof and normally features a rectangular floor plan. Pillars or columns support a small temple like entrance that lead to a paneled doorway with sidelights and topped with a rectangular transom or fanlight.
