Default Housing Styles In Your Town

What are some housing styles in your town? Here are some for my town on Long Island, NY ( suburb of NYC)



Please try to make it in your town, and not your whole city/county etc.

In my little town there are mostly older houses with simple designs.

In St. Louis, brick seems to be used more than anything else. Lafayette Square has a lot of nice houses as well.

Here's an example of some Lafayette Square

Wow, we definitely live in different worlds, even though we think we're all in the same country.

That's what typical houses in Tucson look like:







Older houses look like that:

Then we have these, but as you can figure not everybody's lucky enough to live in them.

Damn, all of you guys housing styles are way better than mine.

Glad I am not staying here after this year. Than out of that place after that year and going off to a college somewhere. After college I am open to the whole USA.
