The White House is the official residence of the President of the United States, located in Washington, D.C., at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Irish architect James Hoban designed the residence in neoclassical style. From 1792 to 1800, construction was under President John Adams. The building consists of six floors (including basement and basement). Two floors are occupied by the family of the incumbent president, the rest houses administrative offices, reception rooms, and dining rooms. Along with the tour, you can see the historic rooms of the White House: the Blue, Green, Red Rooms and some others. White painted Aquia Creek sandstone was used. Thomas Jefferson moved into the house in 1801. To hide the stables and vaults, he, along with architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe, added low colonnades on each wing. The house was ranked number 2 on the American Institute of Architects' list of America's Favorite Architecture in 2007.
