For our Key Features tool, we have created 6 galleries with up to 12 images each:
To explore these features you can click the Camera icon at the bottom of each image for their definition, and links to the Heritage House Styles that include that feature!
Inspired by the book A Field Guide to American Houses by Virginia McAlester, this tool is both an introduction to the language used to see and describe houses, and a field guide to identify homes through the many key features that often times pertain to particular House Styles.
This Glossary is divided in sections of a house, such as Roofs or Façades, and each presents a carrousel of images highlighting a key feature. These images can be clicked to enlarge and to browse through the key terms, definitions, and which styles commonly showcase the features portrayed.
The asterisk (*) marks the House Style showcased in the image.
