Minimal Traditional

Minimal Traditional (circa 1931-1955)

This vernacular type derived from other styles of the period, but lacked their detailing. Roof pitches are low or intermediate, eaves are shallow, there are no dormers, and there is usually one front-facing gable. The homes are typically just one story tall and, for the first time, may feature attached garages via side wings or breezeways. Floor plans were compact and could flow in square, linear or L-plans. Porches are reduced to covered entryways.
