North American houses

I had this thread before but got deleted. Anyway, I'm interested in seeing the different kinds of architecture and styles of houses in the US and Canada preferably middle to upper class homes.

Here are some pictures I took





These homes are located in Woodbridge, New Jersey near NYC. One of my cousins live in this area and I stayed there during my New York trip.





These are in Milpitas, California near San Francisco.

Those older Toronto homes look just like the type of Middle class housing you get in most British cities, and in my opinion they're a far nicer looking design than most modern suburban housing.

Here are just some houses in Richmond Hill, Ontario (GTA):

To the right are Lower Middle Class (townhomes) and the rest are Upper-ish I guess...





Older houses...





Hey at the bottom of the page, there's a small article on Toronto:

I know how you feel. It looks like it was taken straight out of Edward Scissorhands.

We all do, don't worry. Apart from the cool surreal impression they create. But that 'cool' factor would wear off after about two days of living there haha.

My cousins in the Bay Area lives in San Jose which is close. But my dad's fraternity brod lives in Milpitas. He had his son's graduation party in his home and we visited him during my trip. He just graduated in Santa Clara University.

This is my personal battle with the concepts of sprawl and density. Obviously, this is a render of some suburban residential neighborhood that is probably two miles from the nearest grocery store or restaurant or office. Not to mention, probably even longer distance from a rail stop or bus stop. Which means that the people on those streets have almost no choice but to drive.

This is my thing, I like the density and close proximity of the houses. Now after looking at the picture again I see that some of the homes (buildings are actually two homes, with garages on the side for two families). The yards are not that vast and the uniformity keeps everything more or less equal in space as well. I don't see any cul de sacs, but more than likely than are some on the full render.

In my perfect world, there would be a bunch of store fronts with apartments above them, and a rail stop within a 15-20 walking distance of these homes. Or a least a bus stop.
