Yes, a lot of these North American urban homes are fairly similar.

good job, you've covered almost all of the historic Toronto arch styles - bay and gable, edwardian, 2nd Empire, ONtario cottage etc.

I haven't covered the monster home redevelopments yet, and the Beaches. Will try to do that the next time I'm in town.
