Ever wonder what each home style is called ? Real estate listings love to use specific design terminology like “traditional ranch,” or “craftsman.” If you have no idea what those mean, Part Select put together an infographic that runs you through the basics.

 The chart helps define each common housing types in the United States, then talks about specific features like siding style, roof type, window type, and more.
