French House Style -- A FREE Ez-Architect Floor Plan for Windows!

Most buildings constructed during the French colonial period utilized a heavy timber frame combined with an infill of lime mortar or clay mixed with small stones or a mixture of mud, moss and animal hair . Many times this infill would later be replaced with brick.

Another building method was posts in the ground. General characteristics of a French Colonial dwelling include a raised basement which would support the floor of the home's primary living quarters. Exterior stairs were another common element, the stairs would often climb up to a distinctive, full-length porch, on a home's front facade. The porch roof was normally part of the overall roof.

French Colonial roofs were either steep hipped roofs with a dormer or dormers or sometimes just a side gabled roof. Porches were often accessed via French doors and French Colonial homes in the American South commonly had stuccoed exterior walls.
