Column / Porch. Is there a farmhouse under there?
Clever placement of front door and porch. Well executed.
Nice restrained craftsman with wrap around porch and skilled detailing.
Skilled and clever detailing of porch columns, beams and joists.
A stunning integration of living spaces and garden.
It's hard to believe the level of detail and craftsmanship - from the lap pattern of the siding, to the peaked headers, tapered casing... well done. I've never seen an eve intersection like that before but it works well. Kudos.
Somewhere at the intersection of Prairie and Craftsman styles, this house seems to find a confident balance and hold it well.
Back when Craftsman was a way of life, not just a 'style', houses like this were built with precision - every detail better than the last - a balancing of asymmetrical background elements arranged around a symmetrical central core, the central volume floats above the stout columns by virtue of the deep shadows cast by the clear, hot Palo Alto sun.
There are lots of things to like about this bungalow - the ground-hugging massing supports a half story gable dormer, which reaches to stretch out along the width of the low-slung roofline. A bay window with shed roof anchors one end, growing from the stone mass which supports it. Tapered pillars announce the font entry, and the deep porch makes the extra-wide front door seem stout but inviting. I only wish the low, stout profile of the house was complimented by stout, stocky, heavy columns and visible beam instead of the vertical columns which are well executed but a bit thin and support a beam which is hidden by the roof line. A minor change really - and, overall, an excellent home.
Is that the addition I see back there with the transverse gable? If so, well executed. It plays second fiddle to the main house - and is that gable with the 3 windows part of the addition as well? Maybe the side porch? Excellent addition to the original home.
Hard to scale a simple craftsman shape into a large home, but the massing (and detailing) on this sets the bar high.
This is very interesting. Almost a Craftsman Tudor hybrid with some Maybeck influence in the detailing, column capitals, etc. A regional variation from Vancouver or a singular creation?
An excellent update and addition to the Craftsman vocabulary. Vertical battens and standing seam always get me. This seems especially suited to Austin with the cut stone, moss green, and dark roof tones - keeping the trees for a shaded courtyard was hard I'm sure but totally worth it.
Here we have modern timber framing details brought together with craftsman column bases and stone. I'd almost put this closer to the mountain lodge style than craftsman.
A work of art.
Great entry, unique beam spacing, and a strong Asian influence in both the trellis/portico and handrail all work well. It's hard to see from here but the shiplap wainscot supporting the stucco wall is a very nice wall detail. Finally, I'm a big fan of the rafter tail cut - gently tapering starting at the birdsmouth, out to a pleasingly thin eave profile. Well done.
What a great regional take on the Craftsman Style. The wide porch with its tall ceilings and outdoor fans, a standing seam roof, tall profile columns and a soft green finish are an appropriate spin on the style. A well conceived and executed home.
