Home Style of the Month: Craftsman

by | Jul 23, 2015 | St Cloud Custom Home Design

The American Craftsman-style bungalow has its roots in the British Arts and Crafts movement beginning in the 1860s. The goal was to incorporate simplicity of design with local natural materials and handicraft. Handcrafted wood, metal, and glass works are used in these simple, elegant designs.

  • gabled roof
  • deep overhanging eaves
  • exposed rafters
  • front porch
  • double-hung windows
  • tapered columns supporting roof
  • mixed materials

The Craftsman design was used by Frank Lloyd Wright, who used it to help create the Prairie Style home, an offshoot of the Craftsman. This traditional home design has been honed and perfected over the years, and remains a mainstay in American culture.
