Shingle in Seattle

The shingle-style house is a culmination of architectural periods and vernaculars which began cropping up during the popular late 19th-century summer destinations such as Cape Cod, Newport, and Long Island. Massive stone masonry foundations anchored free-form two and three-story floors while continuous wood shingles wrapped walls and roofs. Expansive porches offer vacationers shaded areas for family life and socializing. While the unadorned style still finds its origins on the many coastal regions of New England landscape and even here in the Northwest, it has taken hold in and around the San Juan’s and even inner urban areas like Seattle and Bellevue.
