What kind of house are you? Do you have a favorite house style? Is there a certain kind of house when you see it, there is that instant recognition and you just know. We all have favorites of just about every nice thing or food. My favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. My favorite kind of shoes are slip-ons. My favorite dinner to make is casseroles.
I’ve written about different house styles and been wondering what kind of homes are the favorites. I am showing some different houses here, some from my blog and some from Pinterest and Houzz, and down below is a poll to take on your favorite house style.
A beautiful example of a ranch house style with lighted steps leading up to the door. Ranches were a style created out of the American Western period, meaning working ranches, for informal and casual living. The above is a new home and there is new interest in ranch house styles from the younger generation.
But, a better example of a ranch, above, shows what a ranch is noted for per wikipedia: “a long, close to the ground profile.” This is a sprawling ranch and a beauty.

Spanish Mediterranean house style above is from the same name post. I found it on a fantastic website for scouts to find quality homes for shooting TV or movies.
Cottage house styles (this is Bee Cottage) are picturesque storybook charming and very popular if Pinterest is any judge because Cottages are all over Pinterest and there are many blogs dedicated to cottages.

Victorian houses are eye candy house styles. From my post of same name where can see more Victorian houses to help you make up your mind. Victorian houses are like hand decorated cakes in the bakery just waiting for you to take them home. Yum!
Maybe you like a Houseboat like the one from Sleepless in Seattle movie. This type of houseboat is not motorized, but is moored, meaning to stay put. In the United States, Seattle, Washington has large communities of houseboats like this one. To read more about this famous movie houseboat and other houseboats click the link Houseboat.
A traditional Farmhouse with wrap around front porch and brick walkway. There is a huge interest for houses with wraparound porches on Pinterest.
A Dutch Colonial with true, blue painted exterior, double upper decks, a killer picket fence, and stone pathway to the welcoming front door.
A luxurious Cape Cod home with dormers, upper deck, covered porch, and roof peaks.
You’ve eaten your fruits and vegetables, and now it is time for dessert. It’s a Mansion house style, Mediterranean, but Mansion all the same.
And, a French Manor Mansion house style to gorgeous to be real. Knock, knock.
Okay, I’ve covered some house styles and now it’s your turn to let me know your favorite. I had a poll going, but have uninstalled it recently.
The poll results showed French Manor, Cape Cod, Farmhouse, Cottage, Ranch, and American Craftsman to be the most favorite. Castles, Pueblo, Prairie, Tiny house, and Houseboat were the least favorite. The rest were inbetween.
Head on down to comments to vote for your housestyle.
