Folk - Gable-Front-and-Wing - Northern Style



Northern Style

ca. 1850 to ca. 1930

The traditional style consists of: 

  • Shape: Rectangle shaped house with a wing added at a right angle forming an L shaped house.

  • Porch: Often with a shed-roof porch placed within the L made by the addition of the wing. 

Some are stepped in shape, in that the roof-ridge of the gable-front portion is higher than the adjacent wing, and others the entire roof-ridge is uniform height. 

The Northern style is usually a gable-front two-story house with the addition of a side open-gabled wing added at a right angle, forming the L shape.
