Houses were not necessarily viewed as permanent features. The prevalence of fires, especially in urban areas, and the desire to reflect their upward mobility in their homes meant that homes were often rebuilt or remodeled. Some houses were moved fromone location to another. Prefabricated houses became available for Americans in areas like Texas, in which the fashionable materials and architectural styles of the east were difficult to reproduce. The former fashion for Georgian colonial styles in the stately homes of the east gave way to a Greek vogue. Soon, alongside the still-enduring colonial homes and buildings were pseudo-Greek temples containing everything from libraries to prisons. While log cabins were still common sights on the frontier, the settled areas of the West had begun developing towns with architecture that reflected more permanent intentions.
