House Blog Highlight: Building a Craftsman Inspired Home

May 28, 2008 |  by  |  House Blog Highlights, On the Web  |  Share

Our House is a no frills, straightforward blog that walks readers through firsthand experience of building a Craftsman inspired home. From the photos available it didn’t seem to me as though the exterior had a lot of Craftsman details worked into the design, however there is no mistaking the Craftsman influence within many key elements of the interior. From built-ins, to moulding, to cabinetry – you can tell the homeowners were interested in infusing the Arts and Crafts style in as many places as possible throughout their home. I especially love the clawfoot tub with oil rubbed faucet and stained glass window found in the bathroom. Another item worth pointing out about this home blog is that the homeowners are interested in incorporating some eco-conscious elements within their home such as geothermal heating and cooling.

  1. Wow! Thanks for highlighting my blog. I was really surprised this morning to see this pop up during my daily visit to your site. I haven’t been quite as detailed as I originally wanted to be on the blog and I may have glossed over a hurdle or two but the majority of the details are there. Hopefully someone can benefit from the site.
