Remodeling Projects That Fit Your Home’s Architecture – Colonial Home
Colonial homes are built primarily from wood with a traditionally symmetrical orientation, steep roofs, small glass windows, pillars, rich ornamentation and a massive central chimney. Their popularity began in the 1600s with early European American settlers. They are primarily found in Northeastern states such as Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
