Incised-Porch House

Isaac Kremer/ January 9, 2021/ / 0 comments

This structure is a 2- or 2 1/2-story version of the incised-porch cottage. It has a gabled (and sometimes hipped) roof, but is distinguished by an incised or inset ”gallerieporch that is an integral part of the structure. Floor plans vary with two large front rooms and either two or three smaller rooms behind. Central chimneys or paired interior chimneys predominate in nineteenth-century houses.
