Craftsman house plans are the most popular house design style for us, and it’s easy to see why. With natural materials, wide porches, and (often) open concept layouts, Craftsman style homes feel contemporary and relaxed, with timeless curb appeal. Within this collection, you’ll find many versions of Craftsman style house plans, from modest Craftsman bungalow house plans to grand Shingle style house plans. Many of these designs are 3 bedroom house plans with 2 or 2 1/2 bathrooms, a very popular configuration.
Modern house plans often borrow elements of Craftsman style to create a look that’s both new and timelsss. The Craftsman style is exemplified by the work of two California architect brothers, Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene, in Pasadena in the early 20th century, who produced “ultimate bungalows” like the Gamble house of 1908. Now Craftsman homes are found everywhere, from Texas to Washington and beyond.
