Craftsman-Style Home With Expansive Outdoor Space
This Craftsman-Style home with a classic blue exterior features an expansive outdoor space perfect for any season. Enjoy the covered patio with plenty of outdoor seating by the fireplace, or relax in the swimming pool or hot tub.
The look of the porch is transformed with fresh white paint, khaki trim, painted concrete floors and a ceiling fan in a more classic design. But the star of the new porch is the set of twin chair swings — Ben's custom take on the traditional Southern porch swing. Each is a variation on the familiar Adirondack chair design, and they were handmade by Ben using reclaimed wood from demo of one of the home's interior walls.
This gorgeous historic home from the Arts and Crafts period shows the incredible influence of Japanese and Asian styling married to a traditional Craftsman style home. The home's unique personality is highlighted by its low pitched rooflines and overall pagoda style.
Classic Craftsman-Style Cottage With Coastal Designs
This 4,000 sq. ft. coastal retreat features a classic blue Craftsman-style exterior with cedar-inspired shingles, dormer windows and tapered entryway columns. Two copper outdoor lights are placed above the two-car garage with a fun weather vane at the top of the home.
Contemporary Craftsman-Style Mountain Home Entrance
A lofty cathedral ceiling makes for a grand entrance in the foyer and allows transom windows to let in ample natural light. The stacked stone facade, lantern sconces and contemporary wooden door give this exterior a rustic, Craftsman look.
Jenelle Isaacson of Living Room Realty played up the architectural details of this home's trim by playing down the body color of the home. She found the perfect dark gray for the base that worked with the indirect light of the Oregon skies. Next, she painted the door details, columns and porch ceilings a simple white, really making them pop.
Ada's Technical Books & Cafe occuppies a remodeled home in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The impetus for the project was to create the "book retailer of the future." Achieving this vision required an adaptive reuse design, an addition and a pioneering approach to the neighborhood bookstore. The challenge would be to convert a dilapidated single-story Craftsman into a refurbished mixed-use project. The owners were dedicated to creating a balance of history and modern sustainability, so architect Jeff Pelletier imagined the building like an aged book cover with crisp, clean pages on the inside. In order to connect the space with the street-scape, Pelletier added a raised front porch for cafe seating.
While redwood reigns inside, teak is the wood of choice for the deck. From there, floating stairs lead to a tiered water feature. The home is surrounded by a seven-acre, award-winning garden designed by Paul Leffingwell.
The new and spacious addition addresses the homeowners’ need for a larger porch stair landing and an expanded living room. The renovation of both spaces pays homage to the original historical design of the period.
