How much more money does it cost to build a craftsman style home with all of the interior and exterior details versus a more traditional build?

I'm pulling numbers out of the air, but I would say that a Craftsman Style home would be about 25% more to build than a typical custom home. The details and trim work in a Craftsman style home add more material, which adds more labor and cost.

For example, in a Craftsman home you might want to put up solid traditional wainscoting in the dining room. Adding this wainscoting might cost an extra $5,000 onto the total construction.

I hope this helps!

It does. I built a home 5 years ago but have since fallen in love with craftsman architecture. Your home is beautiful, thanks for sharing.
