I want a Craftsmen Style home! A request, repeatedly heard in today’s new home building industry.
This historically popular, comfortable, family, styled home first emmerged in the early 1900’s In Southern California.
Uniquely American, The Craftsmen Style home, takes is roots from an eclectic mix of Asian influence, and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. During the 1920’s, the housing boom of the simplistic, one story, Ranch home, replaced the more, detailed, handcrafted, Craftsman Style.
Original, Historic, Craftsman Style homes (if you can find one), boast four primary roof shapes: front gabled, cross gabled, side gabled and hipped roof. Details of the porch posts and rails identify the Style as well as stone, brick and shake accents on the facade.
