Lovely Stick Style House

Lovely house in the Stick Style variation of the Queen Anne style in Wyoming, Ohio.

A picturesque house with asymmetrical composition and variety of textures and ornamentation. The Stick Style is a variation of the Queen Anne style featuring wall surfaces divided into panels with flat or molded trim. Popularized by magazines and house plan books, Queen Anne houses were built from coast to coast.

The development of balloon framing and steam mills to produce turned and scroll-cut wood ornament allowed the construction of houses with complex forms and elaborate detail at affordable prices. The variety of forms and details make this style endlessly interesting.

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 in an old house.
