Horizontal lines are the main form and feature of the Prairie style home. That form is accomplished using a low, hipped roofline with very deep eave overhangs, a broad porch and windows grouped horizontally.
Materials for cladding include brick and stucco. Details for Prairie architecture are often wide chimneys, leaded glass accent windows and built-in window boxes. Exaggerated square columns are used to support the expansive porches, which lead to a broad entry.
