American House Styles

Miniaturists and dollhouse builders are always on the lookout for something new and unusual to create. Inspiration and ideas come from a variety of sources. One example of a resource for American house styles is the This Old House website. Check it out.

I often find myself studying houses in my travels. When I notice something about a house that reflects a vintage design, classic line, or unique feature, I find myself drawn to it and when time allows I'll stop by and try to get a closer look or snap a photograph. What is your favorite house style? What characteristic about a house might turn your head? Have you ever discovered a real life house that you think would make the perfect dollhouse or miniature scale replica?
