Shingle Style houses are two or three stories and are completely covered in unpainted wood shingles from roof to foundation.

Some attributes are:

  • multi-gabled roof with long slopes
  • hipped roof dormers or shed-roofed dormers
  • grouped casement windows with multiple panes
  • bay windows
  • undulating patterns in the shingle siding
  • tower with conical or belled roof
  • one or more porches
  • rubblework chimney
