Thanks for the Questions Peter. Sorry I’m late to the show, I’ve been out.

I’m not holding back, so check this out. :sweat_smile: :man_shrugging:

  1. D a foursquare (aka Box) type house is usually quartered; two rooms deep by two rooms wide on both floors. More of a cube than a square, in my opinion.

  2. A Quoining is corner detailing with contrasting blocks. From the French “Quoin” meaning corner.

  3. C Queen Ann Style homes are asymmetrical and feature wrap-around porches and towers and intersecting gables, often with decorative elements

  4. E wood products can exhibit a variety of water-related failures such as rot, swelling, delamination, cracking splitting, staining, growing mold, but efflorescence is seen on brick, concrete block, pavers, cement, lime, sand, clay, stone, etc.

  5. C These styles are symmetric with the front door centered and prominent.
