New England Home Style of the Month: Post-Medieval English

Post-medieval English homes were found throughout England and colonial America in the late 1600's and early 1700's. This is a style born in England and brought to the colonies by Puritans who settled in the Northeast. Although this isn't a common modern style you can incorporate elements into your home's design, such as:

      • Window details This style of home was known for casement windows that often boasted a detailed pane structure. You can use diamond-paned or grid-paned windows strategically in your home to bring a feel of post-medieval English design.

      • Steeply pitched roof When choosing a roof style for your custom home consider a steeply pitched roof seen in many post-medieval English houses. You can also integrate this roofline in specific sections of your home's design for just a touch of the design style.

      • Attention to symmetry The post-medieval English design style is known for its symmetry. You can add this element into a modern home by choosing a floor plan and home exterior that utilizes symmetrical elements such as identical sized rooms on either side of the entryway or a central chimney.
