Nazi Architectural Decoration

A friend recently purchased a home in the American midwest, that clearly has a Nazi architectural feature. The house was built in 1926, and went thru a remodel in the late 1930s. Over about six windows on three exterior walls of the house are what appear to be 1 foot square tiles, "standing" on their tips. They are divided into nine equal fields (like tic-tac-toe/hashtag); the four fields at the points have a swastika at Nazi 45 degree angle; the four fields on the sides have an obvious German Iron Cross; the center field seems to have a runic symbol.
