Home Style ID ?


I'm more and more interested in restoring my home to at least semi-accurate period style but I have no clue what style it actually would fall under - especially with the aluminum siding covering any details that might have been done on the original facade. I know it isnt a strict Arts & Crafts but it doesn't quite fit a Bungalow style either from what I have been able to figure out. The front porch construction is concrete, including the columns - which oddly enough have Ionic detailing.

The home was built in +\-1920, is wood framed with a front and (now) enclosed rear porch. The trim is all fairly wide (4" door / window trim) but very simple. There is very little detailing on it other than the crown at the top of the doors / windows. I do know the original owner was also the builder (and a professional builder I believe based on the sign I found while cleaning.) It is all plaster & lathe and seems very well built.

If it helps at all - I've attached a rough plan and a photo of the front. There is also some info on the neighborhood itself.
