Craftsman Style Home Plans

Popular now in various size homes, the original Craftsman bungalows were generally modest homes with a single story or an abbreviated second floor with one or two bedrooms. Wide porches were supported by simple rails or tapered columns atop brick or stone pedestals. Wood elements framing the home became celebrated, as seen in decorative details such as brackets supporting roofs.

What Is a Craftsman Style Home?

Arts and Crafts-style homes first became popular in the United States in the early 1900s. Known for their great craftsmanship, the home exteriors can be recognized by their low-slung gabled roofs, overhanging eaves, and wide front porches. These homes also encourage the use of natural materials, simple designs, and spacious flowing rooms.

Whether you're looking to build an affordable bungalow or need a more spacious home for your growing family, Design Basics has the right floor plan for you. We're here to help you achieve your dream home!
