USA houses

I was start this thread because I think that It would be interesting to see what kind of houses are built in the US thru the history...
Show me what you got...Modern, Victorian, Traditional, Ranch, Georgian, Southern, Luxury, atc...
And it would be great if you Americans can take photos of such houses in your neighbourhoods or Towns or places where you live...


I'll start...

Winsconsin, USA

As you can see, beachfront homes should have a lot of outdoor patio or deck space.

The distinctive style of Charleston, SC houses. Most homes on the lower peninsula in downtown Charleston are anywhere from 100 to 200+ years old.

The porches are along the sides of the homes because they were built to catch the breezes coming off he harbor and funnel them through the porch and therefore the house. Summer in Charleston is very warm and humid, and this helped them to keep cool. Many of these homes actually have the front door come onto the porch (called a Piazza here), as the porches were actually used as another room. Most of them overlook beautiful gardens.
