In addition to these large formal schemes, Classical ideals were applied to buildings of all types and sizes. The eighteenth century and early nineteenth century witnessed the development of domestic architecture in Britain, particularly with the greater availability of bricks for construction. Woodforde (1985: 12) states:

Georgian domestic architecture was the first kind to rise above the regional variations of vernacular building, none of its house-fronts, at least, conforming to any pattern but that of the Italian Renaissance. A classical house of granite in Lancashire looks very much like a classical brick house in Kent, though the first may be 75 years younger than the second.
