The American Craftsman is a popular style of home that was birthed by the 19th century Arts and Crafts movement. Furniture maker Gustav Sickley designed the style originally and went out to found the Craftsman magazine. His designs put attention to functionality, identifying most Craftsman homes with low pitched rooflines and low, overhanging eaves that expose rafters and decorative beams. The porches attached to these homes are covered with roofs supported by square columns with bases that touch the ground. The interiors normally incorporate wood-based furniture, especially with built-in storages.
