About French Colonial Architecture

French Colonial was one of four domestic architectural styles that developed during the colonial period in what would become the United States. This style of architecture is usually characterized by a raised one story house with many narrow door and window openings having paired shutters, steeply pitched roof, either hipped or side-gabled, and walls of stucco, ussually over a half-timbered frame. Exterior stairs were another common element; the stairs would often climb up to a distinctive, full-length porch, on a home's front facade.

French Colonial Style Mouldings

French Colonial style mouldings are usually derived from simple boards and the quirk and bead. In more complex examples, shapes such as coves, quarter-rounds, ogees and ovolos are used.
