The Craftsman is an architectural design icon and was launched all over the United States from 1905-1930. Designers in the arts and crafts movement such as Charles Sumner Greene, Henry Mather Greene and Gustav Stickley are responsible for the Craftsman popularity. In recent years, it has experienced a resurgence in status and acclaim.
Easily identified by its single-story edifice, low and gentle roof slope, wide eaves, a porch, pillars, exposed rafters, bungalow-like appearance, built-in shelves and cabinets and open floor plan, the style actually has its origins in India. The style is an excellent choice for large gatherings and art displays and takes advantage of each square foot of space. Sometimes Arts and Crafts light fixtures and stained glass windows are included, as well.
Many Craftsman-style homes are designed to take in morning sun and have a nice garden area. Local natural materials like stone and wood are often used to complement the geographic location.
