最近开始考虑在一年内买个房子啦。 开始看广告， 发现好多不同的房子名称， 什么victoria, colonial, cape cod, 不知这些和town house 或condo都有什么区别啊？
VictorianThis home's corner turret, wraparound porch and ornate detailing make it a prime example of Victorian-style architecture. The asymmetrical design is also typical of this early American style.
During the last half of the 19th century, Victorian architecture became one of the most popular styles in the United States. Named after Britain's Queen Victoria, this fancy style earned its title because it was common during her reign.Because of industrial developments and the advent of mass production, design broke away from the simple, symmetrical box-shaped homes that had been so common until this time. The Victorian style reflected the new ability and freedom to add elaborate detail and decoration to a home's facade.
GeorgianThe symmetrical design of this stately brick home exemplifies the Georgian style. The decorative keystones over the shuttered windows, the columned entry and the gabled dormers are also characteristic of this style.
Colonial homes originated on the East Coast and vary slightly from north to south. These stately two-story homes feature symmetrical, rectangular designs, and brick or lap siding. Accents often include chimneys at both ends, shutters and columns.Georgian homes are similar to Colonials, but feature richer details and ornamentation. A traditional Georgian home often includes a centered entry under a decorative pediment (a triangular space that forms a gable), a transom (a small window over a door or another window), and regal columns or pilasters (flat columns). Other details include dormers topped by pediments and cornice work with decorative dentils (small, projecting rectangular blocks).
Cape CodThis simple home is a true-to-form example of the Cape Cod style. The symmetrical design, the dormers and the dominant roofline that extends down to the first floor all typify this early American style.
A typical Cape Cod-style home has one-and-a-half stories and upper-floor windows on both ends. The roof extends down the front and the back of the home to the first floor, but may be interrupted by dormers. Like other early American homes, the Cape Cod-style includes a symmetrical arrangement of the windows and front door.
MediterraneanThis home's low-pitched, tiled roof is the hallmark of the Mediterranean style. Other features common in this popular style include arched windows and a stucco exterior.
ContemporaryThis contemporary-style home displays an asymmetrical design, a varied roofline, a stark facade and bold windows. A circular tower with a domed skylight exemplifies the surprising styling characteristic of contemporary design.

关于预算， JMS是不是先有个数字在脑袋了， 然后按价位来找房选房的呀？
这个Georgian/colonial 和我家的房子几乎一样，除了我家没有dormers 还有我家brick颜色没有那么深红，不过我家的shutters是白色的
