3405 Tudor Home Ideas
Reminiscent of English medieval culture, Tudor homes in the United States are a re-creation of these quaint homes that were popular during the reign of the Tudors in 16th century England. Tudor homes have a wide range of sizes; they could be grand mansions or humble suburban homes. Despite their variance in size, they do have some unifying features, including decorative half timbering on the A-frame of cross gables, huge chimneys and tall, narrow windows. These homes were popular across many parts of the US, especially during the 1920s and 1930s.
One specific type of Tudor home is the Tudor Cottage, which has the characteristic look of a stone cottage you will find out of the pages of a story book. These have steeper rooflines compared to the Tudor house and often have cedar roofs that look like thatched roofs.
