About the Architect
Period Style Resource/Links
This general category incorporates the most fantastic imagery
in residential architecture. The following homes, a special collection
hand picked from hundreds of turn of the century and pre-WWII designs,
incorporate all the main features of their larger brethren. Victorian,
like French Renaissance, is probably the most decorative and thus labor
intensive and costly style to design and build. Your cost per square foot
will exceed most merchant built homes by a factor of 2 or more.
Maintenance for painted wood exterior detailing is also high. Still, these
prototypes have been emulated over the years and hold a special status in the
history of home design. The large wrap around porches, steeply
pitched roofs, gingerbread trim, multiple window geometry and extravagant
details inside and out characterize this style. You will also find some
interesting transitional styles as well. Garages will have to be added at
the rear or side. Plans average 900- 2,200 SF. You may figure approximate areas from the dimensioned plans;
we will be calculating each house and displaying this information in the near
future. To see how you can have a customized design based on the Victorian
style, see below. Go
here to see samples of Mediterranean Revival, Gambrel, Americana, Bungalow,
Tudor, and other styles. We will be expanding this selection to moderately
sized plans in the near future.
The following homes were direct descendants of the ones
above, built between 1830 and 1910
