stick 250The Stick style is rather a subdivision of the Queen Anne, having the same two-story informally arranged parts. But where Queen Anne has a tendency to classic type details, the Stick style lets wooden brackets and porch posts look like pieces of wood, and the ceiling is usually done in panels, shingles, or other siding patterns which are possible only in wood. The style tried to take advantage of the native properties of wood, openly used and expressed, and in no way imitate stone, marble or brick.
