This!

I refer to this style as the "welcome to my garage" type of house. Abundant in So Cal.

we have a lot of that in Tennessee. I'd say that's a very typical middle-class home here, and a large portion of the population lives in a house like that or similar.

They are also Abundant in Texas. I hate them for the same reason. It is is like your car is the centerpiece of your house.

LOL, the Hill House from King of the Hill and The Simpson House are similar.

I think it is the epitome of Suburban america, that is why I say it is Everywheresville America.

A lot of people are saying they are everywhere but whereas houses like that make up 75% of the mid to late-century stock in a city like Albuquerque, you would be hard pressed to find more than a few neighborhoods like that in the NYC suburbs.

While they are common to the United States, they are not ubiquitous in each state.

Los Angeles though its very common here in Texas as well.

I'm sure every Sunbelt city or suburb has this same look somewhere.

Florida also comes to mind.

AZ, Phoenix, Tucson, you won't find a state full of more than here. We love our tract homes, they rule!
Now we throw stucco on them and they are even more Kawaii!

I never will understand the hatred towards the suburbans. Maybe it's all the hipsters and yuppies or people thinking they're better because they don't own a car. How is living on top of everyone without any space and being at the mercy of a bus or train schedule good living? Even with gas being over $3 a gallon, a car brings in freedom. You can go and have your own set schedule.
