Shingle style house plans were popular in the Northeastern United States between 1874-1910. Technically, “shingle” is not an architectural style, but a siding material. However, Vincent Scully, an architectural historian coined the term Shingle style to describe a type of Victorian home united by cedar shingles. In Victorian days, shingles were used as ornamentation, but architects started using shingles as siding creating a rustic feel. Even Frank Lloyd Wright was influenced by Shingle home styles. Shingle style home characteristics include rambling floor plans, inviting porches and rustic informalities.
