This style of home was born in the 1800s and 1900s with thanks to Britain's industrial revolution and the subsequent Arts and Crafts Movement which rejected mass-production in favor of handcrafted works of art.
The term "craftsman" was originally just reserved for homes built from the plans and blueprints of Gustav Stickley, design leader, leading voice of the Arts and Crafts movement in America, founder and editor of 'The Craftsman' magazine, and furniture manufacturer. His design philosophy was a major influence on American craftsman architecture. People welcomed the simplicity, modesty, and functionality of this style of home over the frills, fuss, and eclectic style of traditional Victorians. This was a home for the hardworking American.
