The French Normandy or French Norman style is named for architecture found in the Normandy province of France, starting in the Middle Ages. At the time, people in Normandy and the Loire Valley of France attached their farm silos to the main living quarters instead of to a separate barn. During the 1920s and 1930s, an Americans revivalist movement romanticized the traditional French farmhouse, constructing buildings that take their cues from ancient French rural residences.

The Cape Cod style home originated in colonial New England. They were built by English Colonists as early as the 1600s and were popular through the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. In colonial days, a Cape Cod house was a simple, one-story structure made of wood with a single chimney in the center. Cape Cod houses have 1 to 1/2 stories, a steep roof with side gables, dormers for light, shutters, and little exterior ornamentation. Cape Cods tend to have a more symmetrical appearance, with a door in the center, but that is not a hard and fast rule. Some homes in Inver Grove Heights are great examples of modern Cape Code style architecture.
