Overview


From the late nineteenth century to the early 1920s, the Arts and Crafts Movement spread with great popularity across America. With origins in Britain, the Craftsman style was a reaction against the excesses of the Victorian era. Craftsman bungalows were distinguished by their charming simplicity, cozy style, and storybook appeal. The name was derived from a popular magazine called The Craftsman, published by renowned furniture designer Gustav Stickley who sold plans for these homes designed for "beauty, convenience, and comfort."
This fascinating reprint of a rare architectural catalog is filled with photos of actual completed bungalows from the era, built prior to 1919. A mix of Spanish tile, stucco exteriors, wraparound porches, overhanging gables, handcrafted stone, and woodwork added up to many a homeowner's dream. Geared to the climate of the northern and eastern regions, each bungalow is an authentic Craftsman design and features a photo, description, floor plan, and original costs. A fascinating showcase of primary American architecture, Craftsman Bungalows is an indispensable resource for architects, builders, historians, and illustrators.

CHAPTER 1

THE CRAFTSMAN BUNGALOW CO.

YOHO & MERRITT, SEATTLE, WASHINGTON


368—A veritable mansion and all on one floor, or practically so. The two rooms provided in the rear gable upstairs are small, but amply large enough for the purpose intended. Every room in the house is large and yet not one inch is wasted. Note the convenient arrangement of all rooms—the amount of cupboard space provided in kitchen and pantry. The reception hall is the connecting link between the living room and the balance of the house and serves as an appropriate carriage entrance. The attractive porch is well sheltered and makes a splendid lounge in warm weather. The exterior of the house is sand-finished cement stucco, while the roof is of asphalt shingles curved down at eaves and cornice. The large fluted columns are of wood, while the front steps are paving brick.

Estimated cost $9600.00

468 A—This is one of the best examples of the true Mission style. It has the typical plan of a terrace or "patio" enclosed by three sides of the building. The roof of this house is made of Spanish tile, the exterior is the popular stucco finish over hollow tile. The construction is about as cheap as frame in many parts of the country, and in the long run costs less, if the job is done right. The principal rooms are finished with cove ceilings and hardwood floors. The living room fireplace is very large and of beautiful design. The plans provide for large, well-arranged rooms, large closets and all modern conveniences, including a built-in pullman diner and ironing board in kitchen. The glassed in Loggia is so arranged that it can be used as a summer dining room overlooking the patio with its flowers and tumbling fountain.

619—An exterior which is practically a duplicate of that shown on page seven and a plan arrangement that is very similar but on a slightly larger scale. Two rooms—namely, den and child's room—are provided in this plan which are not to be found in plan number 467, and by the provision of a few more windows the child's room could very easily be used as a sleeping porch if so desired. A glance at the living room interior shown on this page will give one an idea of the splendid opportunity offered in the fine large rooms. The difference of six feet in width between this home and its prototype has certainly been used to advantage as can be readily seen in a comparison of bedrooms. The attic plan calls for a division of the space into two bedrooms, sleeping porch and generous closets.

467—This is a style of bungalow that is becoming very popular in the Western states. The lines of the house are very graceful and the whole effect is very attractive. The design calls for brick veneer to the height of the watertable with sawed shakes above. The brick- faced porch and chimney give the building a substantial air of plenty, borne out by the very liberal lines of the house. The living and dining rooms are connected by a wide opening, which may, if desired, convert them into practically one room. There are two bed rooms with small halls, each with a door leading to either the kitchen or bath room. Perhaps the most attractive feature of this design is the large breakfast room, which opens from the pantry and dining room and so arranged that it has windows on three sides.

457—It is hard to keep from getting enthusiastic about as pretty a bungalow as this, especially after an inspection of the house itself. "Solid and sensible" just describe it. Where large rooms and closet space are needed, it would be hard to find a nicer plan than this. The entrance is into a vestibule which opens into a reception hall with living and dining rooms on opposite sides. The porch floor is cement on dirt filling. The house is very well planned with all the rooms independent of each other, yet easy of access. The dining room has an exceptionally fine buffet. The living room is large and has a large open fireplace.

337—A story and a half house of very pleasing proportions and carefully thought out, different detail. Note the extra wide verge boards and rich, heavy moldings. The first story is shingles in alternate courses. The second story is cement plaster on galvanized metal lath. The curved hood over the front entrance and the balcony effect of the second story windows break up an otherwise rather plain wall. Three large, well planned rooms are provided on the first floor, with splendid outlook on all sides. The upper floor, reached from the reception hall, has fine bedrooms and another room which can be used either as a bedroom or sleeping porch. The bathroom is placed where it is handy to all rooms, as well as economical for plumbing: The house proper is 33' 0" wide and 33' 0" deep.

Estimated cost $5800.00

Price of plans as shown or reversed 20.00


322—While varying somewhat from what one would ordinarily term bungalow, this design has several points of merit. The light and cheerful aspect of the cement plaster forms a pleasing contrast with the dark red brick pilasters. The house is very conveniently arranged, and each bed room is provided with a clothes closet and lavatory. Access is had to the bath room through a hall, which is lighted and ventilated by a skylight. The dining room is paneled to a height of the plate rail, above which in square forms extend quaint Dutch figures around the room.

Estimated cost $5700.00

Price of plans as shown or reversed 20.00


327—This eight-room bungalow is of a type which we may call medium cost and large accommodation. The design savors of great substantiality, notably in the foundation walls and the granite rubble of the porch work and chimneys. The little note of half timber which shines in gables is a very pretty note. The disposition of the various rooms is good, and a room, the library, is provided which can be used as a bed room if the size of the family necessitates. Upstairs are two large bed rooms, each having its own light and roomy closet, the bath room and storage space under the eaves.

Estimated cost $5500.00

Price of plans as shown or reversed 20.00


634—In design this is a good example of that known on the Pacific Coast as the aeroplane type, and its style of architectural treatment, its many curved rafters, ridges and brackets is derived from the architecture of Japan and China. The "curve" idea has been carried out very consistently and just far enough, as a study of the exterior will convince. The cobblestone work in this house is of the very best. In plan this is one of the best arrangements for five rooms. A splendid living room opening to two porches, the side porch being in reality a carriage entrance, a dining room, kitchen, two bed rooms and bath. Note the large closets and the way the stairs have been schemed to take up as little room as possible. The second story, which we are unable to show for lack of room, has one bed room or dressing room, and a large sleeping porch open on three sides.

249—Elaborate both as to the outside and inside design, this bungalow will attract the better class of house owners not only by its pretentious appearance but by the features of the interior, which include a cozy vestibule and reception hall, fireplace in both living and dining rooms, a buffet in the last named room, and, best of all, a breakfast room practically enclosed in glass, available to the kitchen with the same easy access as the dining room. The exterior of the house employs cobblestones and brick on the front with artistic effect, while the dark woodwork with its lighter trimmings makes a pleasing background for the house. The reception hall leads into the commodious living room, which practically extends from the front of the house to the breakfast room in the rear, with a huge fireplace exactly in the center.

419—This is one of the extreme type of bungalows, and wherever built it cannot help but attract a great deal of favorable comment. The very exterior of the house spells comfort. The use of cobblestones of assorted size and color for the fireplace and porch walls adds a pleasing touch to the exterior. The interior is about as conveniently arranged as is possible to plan a bungalow. Every room has a clothes closet and a pass hall connecting with the bath. The dining room has beam ceilings and paneled wainscoting. The plumbing in this house is especially well arranged; in being grouped together it can be installed at a smaller cost than is general in bungalows.

357—A one and one-half story home of unusual merit. Five splendid rooms and sleeping porch of good size, containing all the latest conveniences, in the way of built-in features. Note the practical arrangement of breakfast nook, ironing board and cabinets; also the buffet and inviting fireplace. The downstairs hall will save steps. Fine roomy closets are provided in abundance. The open balcony makes a comportable upstairs porch. The basement, under the entire house, is fitted up for laundry, furnace and fuel rooms and fruit storage. Four-inch cedar siding as the exterior wall covering lends a distinctive appearance to this attractive home.

458—Departing somewhat from the exterior appearance of the conventional five-room bungalow is this pretty home. Perhaps the most attractive feature of this plan is the bed room, equipped with a reversible concealed bed, so arranged that it can be used either in the bed room or in the sleeping porch in the rear. The living room is unusually large and is divided from the dining room by an open arch. Both of the principal rooms have beam ceilings and paneled wainscoting. Although the kitchen is small, ample cupboard space is provided in the pantry. The plan affords a great deal more closet space than is generally found in a bungalow. Special notice is called to the convenient way in which the rooms are grouped around the pass hall.

Estimated cost $5200.00

Price of plans as shown or reversed 15.00


323—We show here a very popular design for a cement plaster bungalow, roofed with imitation Spanish tile made from galvanized sheet iron. While the first cost of such a roof is somewhat higher than shingles, when one considers the saving in the continual upkeep of expense of a shingle roof the ultimate cost of a more permanent material will be seen to be no higher. The rooms are larger than are ordinarily found in a bungalow and are arranged for convenience.

358—A large house attractively designed for a corner lot. Thirty-six by forty feet in its over- all dimensions, this house requires a lot at least sixty feet in width to set it off properly. Six fine rooms on the first floor, arranged so that the den can be used as a bed room if required, with access to hall through coat closet, without entering the reception hall. The hall connects all rooms, doing away with the necessity of disturbing your guests in living room or dining room when answering the front door bell. French doors are hung at all wide openings to living room, dining room and den; and the door from reception hall to rear hall is also a glass door. An immense buffet is provided in dining room against the inside wall. Several additional rooms can be placed on the second floor.

223-This is a roomy house with no ginger-bread effects, yet altogether a pleasing shingled exterior. Two outside closets, three bed rooms, with another room available upstairs, show something of the excellent manner in which the bungalow is designed. The brick-faced porch and chimney give the place a substantial air of plenty, borne out by the liberal lines of the house. The living and dining rooms are connected by a wide opening which may, if desired, convert the two into practically one room. The cellar stairs are beneath the flight leading to the upper floor. Perhaps the most attractive room of the house is the dining room, large and cheerful with its huge bay window, its heavy beam ceiling and cozy buffet niche, which gives additional space for table and chairs.

524—Another extremely popular design of five rooms on the ground floor with two bed rooms, one 14 by 14 feet, the other 10 feet 6 inches by 14 feet, and sleeping porch of ample size on the second floor. The fireplace is enclosed in an ingle nook with seats on either side. Large, roomy closets are provided for all the bed rooms and the bath room is located convenient to all rooms. The plan calls for a brick flue in the kitchen for kitchen range and laundry stove. The furnace flue is in the fireplace chimney.

758—This home, the plan on the left, designed to fit the exterior shown on page twenty, gives the same number of rooms in practically the same plan with one essential change, namely, that of providing for a stairway to the second floor in the front of the house. Other changes are the elimination of ingle nook in front of fireplace and the addition of an immense buffet to the built-in features of the house. The second floor provides two bed rooms and a sleeping porch. The outside wall covering is cement stucco.

351—Another plan for the same house, only on a much smaller scale, calling only for the five rooms on the main floor in a ground space 24 by 40. We have kept all the main features of the original house and have shown a plan that will become very popular. Note the neat "Pullman diner" provided. If one desires a still less expensive home on this type, they are referred to number 747 on page 92.

1 18-This seven-room home is twenty-four feet by forty feet on the ground. By the clever use of several very ordinary materials, each in its proper place and broad horizontal lines, an appearance of breadth is given which is further enhanced by the many roofs, every one legitimate. The basement walls to a watertable placed at the window sill of the first floor are covered with four-inch cedar siding. Above this are shingles laid four inches to the weather. The gables are of pebble dashed cement stucco, paneled with narrow wood strips. The seven rooms are well placed. The four living rooms are closely connected on the first floor, while the three bedrooms are grouped about the bathroom hall on the second floor. Large closets are provided for all rooms and two linen closets are also provided.

466—One test of the popularity of a bungalow is the number of people who have built in a similar style In our city it is built with many variations in the detail of interior arrangement. The porch is of course the original and attractive feature of this bungalow. If properly constructed, the gable on the roof is a great success, but the plans must be followed very carefully. Although the ceiling in the second story is low, ample room is provided for two small chambers and a sleeping porch. The exterior is sided with sawed cedar shakes laid 12 inches to the weather and stained a dark gray, which forms a striking contrast to the white trim of the smooth woodwork. This is one of our very best houses.
