Gorgeous Craftsman Home With Stone Siding, Decorative Wood Beams and Wooden Doors
A large arched driveway area allows for multiple car maneuvering in and out of the wooden garage doors. Decorative triangular beams frame each roof point for a lovely cohesive design. Stone siding is a timeless and texturally pleasing element making the exterior view of this home very pleasing to the eye.
Joanna Gaines was inspired by the arched door on this small, 1927 brick home. Restoring that single original feature – which had been concealed by an add-on porch – helped inform her design plan for the entire home.
Stacked stone walls, a wood planked ceiling and lantern sconces create a warm, welcoming front entry. Patterned glass on the sidelights and transom window gives the front door a distinct Craftsman look.

In the fall of 2013, a single-story Craftsman was remodeled into a cafe and bookstore combo with a local, sustainable design that fosters community and commerce.
