Craftsman House Plans

About these plans

What is a Craftsman style house plan? Popular in the first half of the 20th century, particularly in Southern California, the craftsman home enjoyed a revival in the 80s that continues to this day. It’s easy to see why. With an emphasis on handcrafted natural materials, the craftsman style, beginning in the 1920s, is rooted in a backlash against the finicky Victorian era. Equally, its no-nonsense virtues offered a comforting contrast to post-70s excess. Emerging as a fusion of the British Arts and Crafts movement with Frank Lloyd Wright’s early prairie style, the craftsman home is defined by its wide, inviting porches and tapered columns, gabled roof with exposed beams and rafters, and interior modelling with wood and other natural materials. • Low-pitched gabled roof, overhanging eaves, exposed rafters • Wide front porches framed by sturdy columns • Dormer windows; doors and windows with long vertical panes • Interior woodwork eg. built-in cabinets, shelving, and seating • Handcrafted raw and natural materials; wood, brick, stone
