Post war Minimal Traditional based on the Cape Cod. The style is simplified and streamlined. They were NOT made of cheaper materials. This is a typical home for mid century working middle class Americans.
After WWII, the Minimal Traditional morphed in to a variety of Ranch styles, including this early suburban type, which had much in common with its predecessor. The ALAMO(1950–1961+) has the extended eaves and hipped roof common to many of the 50s ranches, but it was the simple modernity that won over most Americans.
