Cottage-style houses are often described as cozy and charming. They are typically on the smaller side when it comes to square footage but have a big personality.

The Craftsman-style focuses on the value of handmade, well-constructed architecture. Craftsman houses go against the mass-produced or cookie-cutter home developments – they are typically a horizontal, sturdy build. 

Townhomes typically make use of vertical space with multiple stories but save horizontal space by sitting side by side with other homes. Sometimes there are shared amenities among a collection of townhouses.
