Straight from the Craftsman Touch blog – the details from Jan Davidson’s brilliant Craftsman home are impressive to say the least. Just check out the inlayed “fallen leaves” on the steps in the picture to the left. These are the type of details that define a historic home. The kind you’ll see on “This Old House” 80 years from now as some future couple moves in, discovers countless hidden gems and works to restore and preserve an architectural relic.
If you’d like to see more of Jan and her husband’s home then get the book Along Bungalow Lines. The Davidson’s home along with other jaw dropping, Craftsman style dwellings are captured in the book by the gifted eye of photographer, Linda Svendsen. I highly recommend it to all looking for inspiration when restoring or building their own home and to see architectural art at it’s finest level.
Love this blog. Love that the homeowner did all the work. And I love the detailed photos and descriptions of their kitchen renovation. Although my tastes aren’t 100% identical, I truly like a lot of their design decisions. Cabinets and backsplash are particularly impressive. And I also like the island and cabinet with hutch. The green color is different, but nice.
Their kitchen renovation is pretty much complete but it’s still worth visiting to read about the project from start to finish.
Truthfully, I don’t know if I’d have the nerve to gut my kitchen and start from scratch. As long as it would take me, my family and I would become obese from all the eating out we’d have to do. Obese I tell you. And I simply can’t allow that to happen.
