I agree about the Bungalow and Craftsman styles and like them both.

The A-frame seems nice for a vacation home, though:

 


@feline groovy Yes this would be great as a vacation home!

@feline groovy 

Thanks for posting.

 

I grew up in a minimal traditional home. I live in a ranch style home now. My favorite would be a bungalow, but I've never lived in one. 

 

The Victorian houses are very interesting architecturally. Cape Cods and Colonials appeal to me too. 

My sister lives in a split level. It's ok, but it wouldn't be my first choice due to all the stairs. 

A-line homes are ok in wooded or natural settings, but I don't think I'd choose that style. 

 

I don't like the contemporary, McMansion, or Neo-Eclectic styles very much.

My house was built in 1900 and I wish it looked like the example from that decade!

 

I always find it interesting going down lots of the streets in my town and seeing houses from every decade.  You can tell which parts of the town were developed first.  It's also not uncommon to see huge newer houses next to a bunch of capes, ranches or split levels.
