Speaking of a craftsman, can you envision how a home is going to look like when it was built by his artistic capability? You might expect the home to be highly artistic and has a wonderful construction. In fact, craftsman style home plans do really look like that. These home plans are brought to you by English designers. We can easily recognize homes that were inspiration by the English design. There are some names behind the popularity of these plans, among others, William Morris and John Ruskin. Both of them introduced the Arts and Crafts Movement to the public and it kept going until today. There are several hallmarks to recognize if you find them difficult to be distinguished from other artistic plans.
These home plans gravitate toward the use of handicrafts. It is common to see natural materials and simple forms in these typical house plans. Although English designers were the first who made this concept popular, it is now enjoying worldwide popularity for people around the world admire them, too. In the United States, there are some designers who give great attention to these particular plans. Henry Green is one of a few designers who are trying to improve and make them more socially acceptable in today’s home trends. Not to say that the original plans are not acceptable, it just needs some tweaks to blend better with today’s home trends.
People also refer to it as the Western Stick style. There are a few noticeable things from them. First, they look more or less like bungalow and Prairie plans. With so many different designs created by numerous designers, it makes sense if some share similar characteristics with the others. As for this one, you will find quite a few similarities between this concept and the Prairie or Bungalow style. Here is where the similarity is so palpable. All of these styles feature a low pitched roof. Such a structure is actually quite common and there are a few others that also have this feature. Not only is the roof set up so low, but it also comes with some intersecting gables which become another similar feature all these plans share. That’s all about craftsman style home plans.
