Craftsman Homes

Laurelhurst Craftsman Bungalow: Dining Room is finally finished. It took a little while to finish the minor details, but we're done. (The top picture is the before, the bottom after. Yes, we stripped and stained the wood.)

From 'The House Beautiful' 1925. Wow - 2 colonnades! The bookcase colonnades lead to a den at the end of the living room. The french doors in the den open onto a spacious dining porch.

Dining Room at the Duncan-Irwin House (another grand Greene & Greene house in Pasadena, CA).

New Craftsman Bungalow Kitchen

New build: Craftsman Bungalow living room / fireplace

Artemesia L.A., CA | Hilton Hyland - Artemesia is arguably the best Craftsman house ever built. It features a unique English Arts and Crafts interior, nearly two acres of wooded grounds with waterfalls, the second-largest pipe organ in the country, amazing views to the ocean from most rooms, and a 2,000 sf ballroom.... Artemesia is the largest Craftsman residence in the U.S. Constructed in 1913 as the family residence of the largest builder west of Chicago, no expense was spared nor corner cut.

There are several reasons No. 580 appeals to us, even though the position of the kitchen chimney is oddly placed relative to the range, which most likely would have been a woodstove in 1918. It's a simplified Craftsman-style bungalow, a basic rectangle so it would be relatively easy to build, with two bedrooms and a bathroom, and reasonable size living rooms. As small houses go, it even has a respectable amount of closet space without counting the basement storage.

Many Arts & Crafts houses were built from kits manu­fac­tured by Sears, Roe­buck & Co., Alad­din and other kit makers. Kits weighed about 25 tons, included a detailed assembly manual, extensive blueprints, and about 10-30,000 individual pieces. Sears alone sold over 70,000 kit homes from 1908 to 1940.
