Farm house has many similarities to Victorian, but it's usually much more simplified. It's like the "country boy" version of the city Victorian. Actually, Texas Victorian is closer to farm house because in that timeframe, Texans were generally poorer than a lot of the Easterners. It is a simpler detailed design, but the massing is still the same. At least in our locale, I would introduce the traditional stone masonry materials around here in the farm house style because people used what they had. They used what was there (indigenous materials) for that. So I usually speak from the historical context when I am dealing with styles and periods and all that. So that would be indicative to me as the farm house design.
