OLD COLONIAL IN SNOW


This is a colonial style house that you would see all over New England. Most of this style house were built in the 18th century. This would have been built by a wealthier family. You will see a lot more of these Colonial style houses than say a Cape style house because these people could afford better materials and could afford to pay craftsman to build their house. The floors would be made of Maple, Chestnut, Oak or other hard woods. A much simpler house might be built with more pine and the craftsmanship might not be as good thus might not be around today.
