Architectural Style

Our house is a little unusual as far as architectural style goes. From the outside, it looks like a four square at first glance, but inside it’s nothing at all like a four square.

We got word from J. (the Architect) today about the style of our house. She did a little research and told us that it’s an American Four Square with Prairie influences, and Arts & Crafts influences on the inside.

She also gave us some pointers on where to start looking to find information about our house’s history: Original architect, building permits, and possibly plans. Unfortunately, we need a copy of the deed or a water bill to initiate a lot of this research, and currently we have neither.

Not to worry… we’ve got years to find out all about our house’s history.
