I adore Tudor-style houses. Maybe it's because of their peaks and gables, stone archways or house hugging bricks. As a kid, I remember seeing them in the neighbourhood and I would make sure to steal glances at them every time we drove by. I was inspired by HGTV Magazine's article on the Tudor revival. Who can resist these modern day reinventions of medieval cottages from the 1500s? I know I can't!
