Bungalows, Foursquares, and other housing types with Craftsman styling


When we speak of American Craftsman houses, we often think of bungalows. But in the early 1900s, many types of homes were inspired by the Arts and Crafts movement in England and Scotland. The popular work of Scottish architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) advanced interest in the basic style and its import to the U.S. This photo gallery shows a variety of houses with Craftsman handiwork.
