They all look like Texas to me, especially the second set. I don't think I've seen pictures of houses so low to the ground anywhere else. I've never been to Dallas, but that's what I imagine homes there to look like.

But the second house in the second set looks plain silly to me. It looks like the ground floor (which is literally on the ground here) is being eaten by the top 2/3 of the house. It just looks so out of proportion, all roof and almost no walls. If it were up on a crawlspace of just a few feet, and had some steps leading to the front door, it would look more proportional, IMO.

Obviously it is somewhere arid, due to the local flora.

But in terms of the style of homes - except for the first photo, they do not look like anything I've ever seen in the eastern U.S., north or south.

I agree, I like a good foundation to lift the house main floor off the ground to help keep most bugs, water, dirt, etc out.. I also think it looks more attractive to have a lifted entrance.

Frankly all of them look like New Mexico, but could easily be in West or South Texas. But probably not North or Central TX, and definitely NOT East TX.

Actually all of these could be in Central Texas.

Well not in my part of CenTex. The architecture of homes in places like Killeen, Temple, Belton, and Florence tend to lean more towards the styles found in North Texas and eastern Central Texas.

The only place I can imagine seeing some of these homes is in the eastside hills of Copperas Cove

Wherever they are, I would avoid that place at all costs. No offense.

Actually, The first set are not like much of anything one might find east of Pennsylvania. The have a midwest-and-west look.

The second set, I concur with most of the others here, Texas and region.

Of course, they all look like they are in New Mexico but that is because of the trees/landscaping more than the architecture, per se.
