|Arts & Crafts|
Â Â Â Â Arts and Craft style homes started to appear in the 1900 and began to boom in the following two decades. Arts and Crafts style homes are sometimes referred to as craftsman homes. This style of home was most popular on the smaller affordable bungalows.
Â Â Â Â Some of the features that identify these homes are: Exposed rafters, beams or rafter ends in the eaves. Corbels or triangular shaped trim pieces in the gables. Dormers. Generally shed dormers were the most common however these plans were also designed with gable and hipped dormers. Foundations that slope outward as they get closer to the ground. These foundations were ofter constructed of rock. Generally the exteriors were a wood siding or stone with masonry chimneys. Large porches along the front of the home. Interior trim work is generally simple, square or slightly tapered moldings and wider base and casing.
