What’s hot and what’s not in home styles

This house at Babcock has a more coastal design.
The West Indies style estate home was built by Diamond Construction.
Fox Premier Builders decided to do something very different at Babcock when they created a log cabin model.

There is modern, contemporary, transitional, coastal, Key West, West Indies and  Mediterranean. Then there is the lesser seen farmhouse, cottage, colonial, Cape Cod, craftsman, ranch, Tudor, split level, art deco, Victorian, log home, mid-century modern,  Asian, pueblo, and more. So people building or buying a home have a lot to choose from. Back in the 1990s and early 2000’s it was simpler. Most people were selecting the Mediterranean look with its rounded arches and columns. But that’s fallen out of favor, and what’s replaced it, isn’t one style anymore, but a variety of styles with some common traits.

“The trend today is not the trend,” said Gary Aubuchon, owner of Aubuchon Homes. “There is not a predominant style today as it was in the mid 2000’s when virtually everything was Mediterranean.”
