Craftsman House Plans
Craftsman style house plans are some of the oldest in America. Craftsman house plans date back to the late 1800's and early 1900's. The Craftsman home plan evolved from the early Bungalow style and usually had low pitched roofs and wide overhangs. The Craftsman house plan got its tag from the Craftsmanship of the local carpenter. Many of the gingerbread details of the Craftsman style home were left up to the carpenter on the job who took great pride in what he was able to create. One of the most recognizable features of the Craftsman house plan is the tapered boxed columns commonly found on a very spacious covered front porch. The Craftsman home plan will often have stone accents and cedar shake siding and warm wood details both inside and out.
