A reader submitted this photo to our House Helpline. Over the years, the house has seen many changes. The shape of the roof, the style of the porch, and the circular window suggest a variety of influences from Colonial Revival to Prairie Style.

Does your house combine many different architectural ideas? Absolutely! Even if you can identify a specific style such as Queen Anne or Georgian Colonial, your home incorporates ideas that developed over many centuries. Look closely and you'll discover a fascinating mix of traditions, dreams, necessities, aspirations, and vanities. Just like a royal palace!
