Classic homes never go out of style, and craftsman homes are true American classics. Originally designed to be the answer to housing needs as the United States rose to prominence on the world stage, craftsmans became the go-to architectural style for middle-class families.
Today, these homes conjure feelings of warmth, old-fashioned comfort, and an idealistic notion of home. We gathered 10 lovely craftsman homes to cozy up to this fall.
