Like Queen Anne, the Shingle style was influenced by English architect Richard Norman Shaw. The style is simpler than Queen Anne with a more horizontal emphasis. It is characterized by the uniform use of wood shingles as the primary surface material without interruption by corner boards. Multi-planed or gabled roofs with long slopes and narrow eaves, multi-light casement or sash windows, and asymmetrical facades are also characteristic of these two- or three-storied buildings.
