The Trouble with Tudors

Featured in Midwest Home Magazine’s May/Jun issue, by Camille LeFevre

The stucco exteriors with accent stones, narrow mullioned windows, and gable roofs mimicked country residences built during the Tudor era. Today, American Tudor Revivals (as they’re commonly called) pose numerous challenges to 21st-century homeowners, who lead significantly different lifestyles than their predecessors in 1920s Minneapolis (or medieval England, for that matter).
