The same Victorian movement that led to the rise of the
Queen Anne style
also made possible the popular Shingle style home.
Distinctive towers, protruding gables, and complex rooflines connect this style to the rest of the
school. Windows and entryways are not as elaborately decorated as other Victorian homes, however.
Though named for its continuous wood shingles, the style can also incorporate stone for foundations, towers, and porch supports. Continuous rough-hewn wood shingles cover the roof and siding, but sometimes just on the second level. Example homes feature cross gables, steeply pitched roof lines, and eaves on several levels. Towers are common.
