Frank describes the Bragg house in the following way:

"big house, ungainly and monolithic, with tall Victorian windows and bellying bays and broad brick chimneys" (Page Four)

If this description is symbolic of the family's character, it might represent their former place in society. The family might have been powerful, prestigious, and proud. The house, now shabby and unkempt, might easily be compared to the way Randy feels about living in the shadow of his ancestors, as he cannot seem to equal their accomplishments.
