CRAFTSMAN

Popularized during the first three decades of the 20th century, directly influenced by the earlier 19th century Arts and Crafts movement in England, the Craftsman house features low pitched gable roofs, deep overhangs reinforced by brackets, a mix of wood and stone materials, and an open floor plan. The simple formality, horizontal proportions, and warm color palette of these 1- 2 story homes evokes a sense of harmony with the natural surroundings.
