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.)

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.

1918 by EW Stillwell, design #R-88. 1st fl bedroom, put a bath in its place attached to the den and the hall, larger closet in den as well. The kitchen should lose the door directly to the dining room, breakfast nook could be a small greenhouse or sunroom, back porch could be a pantry / mud room. 2nd floor: lose the dressing room, turn into bath. Existing bath is incorporated into sleeping porch and larger landing

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.

Sears kit homes - you ordered the house from Sears catalog....they are still around today - beautiful and FULL of CHARACTER.....
