The Quintessential Modern American Home

The Quintessential Modern American Home

5 February, 2014  |  Exterior, House Interior

Classical styled homes in North America were typically made with wood, stone and brick until aluminum siding and mass manufactured roofing tiles became popular. This vivid example of a modern American home comes with many older elements mixed in with contemporary elements. Warm colored aluminum siding is found on the exterior while high gloss finish exposed wood beams frame the triangular shaped interior ceilings. Developed by Landsted Companies, there is a modern elegance inside this home that cannot be denied. A stone fireplace has been situated in the living room, creating an accent wall as well as a home entertainment unit. Wood and metal has been used to make the spiral staircase that sits next to the open dining room space.
