Our house looks like a barn.

this is the top half of our place
It's an early 1900 Dutch Colonial Revival:
Based on the style of housed built by the Dutch settlers on New Amsterdam (New York) in the 1600s, the Dutch Colonial was popular between 1900 and World War II. A common characteristic is the gambrel roof (i.e., a curving roof with a shape similar to a barn roof).
Searching the internet, I came across this blog post about barn shaped houses, and this flickr pool of similar houses (posted below).
