Saltbox home plans originated in New England and are a perfect example of Colonial style architecture. First seen around 1650, the simplicity of Saltbox style homes remained popular throughout Colonial and Early American times. Named after the Colonial saltbox they resemble, the Saltbox home usually has no ornamentation and its exterior is adorned with shingle or clapboard siding. Saltbox homes have just one story in the back and two stories in the front. The flat front and central chimney are recognizable features, but the asymmetry of the unequal sides and the long, low rear roofline are the most distinctive features of the Saltbox style home. The extended space at the rear of this style lends itself to the modern desire for an open design, while presenting a simple Traditional look from the street.
