    As the name strongly suggests, this is a celebration of unique and confident craft. If you see tapered columns, gable brackets and window panes in the front door, you're most likely gazing at a Craftsman.

  • Craftsman Style Notes

    • Comfortably curb appealing in a variety of siding styles, from clapboard to shake and shingle
    • Low-pitched gabled or hipped roof lines are a Craftsman feature
    • Another showcase of craft: exposed rafters or decorative brackets under the eaves
    • Upper section of house is often supported by tapered, square columns

    The Craftsman is an intimately scaled, intricately detailed, uniquely American home style born around the turn of the 20th century. Every aspect of its sturdy workmanship and handcrafted details furthers its firm rebuttal to the opulence of the Victorian era. Window and door accents play a major role in complementing and unifying the rest of the exterior elements.
