There's something about American Craftsman style that's appealing to more and more homeowners these days. A higher level of detail is common in homes of this style, but it's more than that. Perhaps it's the "accessibility" of Craftsman detail; the simple logic of it; and the comfortable human scale.
Craftsman home style was an early 20th-century American invention, influenced by the English Arts & Crafts movement, and a reaction in part to the soullessness of Moderism.
In California in particular, Craftsman became the default style for Bungalow homes. From the west coast Craftsman Bungalows spread across the country - there are numerous examples in the close suburbs of most large cities in America.
Properly done, a Craftsman home can contribute to a closer relationship between a home and the people who live in it - something that should be the goal of any new home design.
