2973 Craftsman Home Ideas
Craftsman homes became popularized when home owners became tired of the excessive ornamentation found in Victorian and Tudor styles, and opted for simple designs, modest woodwork and natural materials.
The Craftsman style is also called Arts and Craft architecture. Houses in this style typically have low roof pitches, overhanging eaves and plenty of exposed beams and rafters. Craftsman homes have large, covered porches, with thick and battered columns that are most often the distinctive feature of the style. Stone details and shingle siding are also common.
