There is not any absolute prototype for a farmhouse, but most of us can recognize one if we see it. By definition the originals were found on farms and were integral to the life and work of those farm families that lived there.
Depending on if and where those homes were built, they could be made from stone, brick, shingles or clapboard. Most farmhouses had porches since there was no air conditioning and many farm and family chores were undertaken there. The porch roof provided shelter from sunlight and rain nevertheless enabled the cool breezes to flow through and help make those steamy summers tolerable.
