The architecture of American Craftsman homes started in the early 1900s and gained popularity into the 1930s, particularly in California and the Midwest before spreading throughout the country. It was an offshoot of the British Arts and Crafts movement that veered from the often lavish and eclectic designs of Victorian homes in the 1800s. The Craftsman style, often associated with small- to medium-sized homes, emphasized simplicity, clean lines, artisanal craftsmanship and natural materials. These homes continue to be one of the most popular style homes today.
