Saltbox home plans are a variation of Colonial style house plan and are named after the Colonial-era salt container they resemble. Saltboxes are typically Colonial two-story house plans with the rear roof lengthened down the back side of the home. The rear roof extends downward to cover a one-story addition at the rear of the home. The resulting side view of the home resembles the shape of a saltbox - thus the name. In Colonial days, extending the rear roof offered a practical means of enlarging the home for growing families.
