Home Style of the Month: Craftsman

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.

        Craftsman features include:


  • 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. Contact the Design Team today and explore if the Craftsman is the perfect design for you and your family. We serve St. Cloud, MN and beyond.

House Style of the Month: Homestead or Farmhouse


Be sure to check out the Design Team’s house of the month for December: the Homestead. Sometimes referred to as American Country or Farmhouse, this style home was brought to the Midwest from 1850-1920, influenced mainly by Victorian and Colonial homes.

Most often, these homes would start small and as more space was needed, homesteaders would add to their homes. Features include 6” lap siding, double hung windows, small panes of glass, gable roofs and most distinguishable, their wrap around porches.

Is the Homestead of Farmhouse right for you? Which features do you most enjoy and would you most like incorporated into your home?
