Mrs. Sarah Behie's House, Sheet Harbour, NS


The Four Square buildings, 1895-1930, include the following characteristics:

- wood, stucco, brick and occasionally in cement block construction
- 2 ½ storeys
- hipped or pyramidal roofs with a large dormer or four undersized dormers
- chimney discreetly placed
- centered or off-centered doorways, symmetrical facade, and one-storey porch often spans front of house

The almost flat-roof rural houses may be a Nova Scotian variation of this style.

Date: ca. 1900
