Excellent introduction to the style. You show many APD designs with mansard roofs, but the broad overhang with multiple dormers is also very characteristic. Scully's Shingle Style is the bible of this style.

Hi Becky, I just saw this article form 2011! I am so glad that you appreciate this wonderful aesthetic. It has such a wonderful informal, relaxed, yet very beautiful appeal. My favorite image is the first one, the house seems to grow organically out of the hill-side and fits so perfectly into the natural setting. Love it. ---Tom
