The link below refers to a 1920's example of a two storey house with one side of the roof longer than the other. A similar style of house built on a one-floor plan was common in the 1960's. A number of years ago we called this style "1960's Moderne" though that was our own local designation. It was common to have a large fireplace on the front of these houses and to have what we termed asymetrical balance. This was a reaction to the perfectly symmetrical balance of the houses of the 1920-1940 era and the small Cape Cod style of houses of the 1950's with their wide pine panelling in the small "den" room.

Do you know the approximate year when your house was built?
