  • 1 Gothic Revival – Carpenter's Gothic

    Carpenter’s Gothic structures are made of wood and are typically simple in their construction, but use a number of elements to create the vertical effect that is a hallmark of Gothic Revival architecture. They are often clad with vertical board and batten sheathing, as well as gable roofs, which work to create an elongated façade. The structures also often use superficial and non-academic application of trim, moulding and mill work from pattern books to emulate a Gothic Revival churches. This architectural type was once quite common in Ontario, but has become increasingly rare.
