Renae Crill

American Craftsman homes originated in the early 1900’s with the works of two prolific architects in Pasadena, CA. Charles and Henry Greene were influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement in England, and similarly worked to promote the fine touch of craftsmen in making a house into a home. From California, this home style spread throughout the country into the 1920’s.

These days, the term Craftsman is commonly used to describe a home that expresses Arts and Crafts aesthetics. This particular building style is best identified through its architecture and interior design. A popular form of the Craftsman style is found in a bungalow.

On the exterior, Craftsman homes typically showcase intricate millwork and great attention to detail. Many homes have low-pitched roofs, single dormer windows, tapered columns, exposed beams, decorative supports, multi-pane windows and large front porches. Interior touches include an open floor plan, natural materials, built-ins, and wide window and door casing.

Whether you currently own a Craftsman home or simply appreciate the delicate architectural detail, you can embrace similar stylistic choices with a simple DIY project. This Craftsman door casing tutorial outlines how to frame an interior door for a sleek, simple finish using 1″ X 4″, 3/4″ X 2″ and 1/2″ X 2″ boards. With only five S-4-S boards, you can frame a door to insert instant character and charm into your home.
