Western Stick style

Western Stick style

(1890–1920)
An adaptation of the Stick style characterized by a gently pitched gable roof that extends well beyond the wall, and by projecting balconies. A unique feature is the exposed stick-like rafters that project along the roof eaves. Window lintels, railings, and other beams extend beyond vertical posts. Pegs were used to join the members, and the ends were rounded off, as were corners of posts and beams. The exterior was finished in wood shingles.
