A Queen Anne style house in Easton, PA. This lovely example of the Queen Anne style has a wonderful projecting tower on one side of the façade. An expansive porch with a stone base extends across the front and wraps around the side. The outstanding two-story projecting bay window above helps to emphasize the entry bay on the porch. The combination of clapboard and patterned shingle siding are typical of the style as are the varied pane patterns in the windows.
Popularized by magazines and house plan books by George F. Barber and others, houses in this style were built from coast to coast. Technological advancements in the wood products industry allowed the construction of wood framed houses with complex forms and elaborate detail at reasonable prices for middle-class buyers.
Understanding the style of a house is the essential first step in developing a restoration plan that prioritizes the preservation and restoration of character-defining features while making changes necessary for modern life.
More than 50 full color photos are used to illustrate the Queen Anne style in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
