"We bought our house in 2001. It's a 1905 Craftsman that was falling apart when we bought it and was under construction the entire first year we lived there. It was the light that originally made me love the house. We are up on a hill and we have unobstructed light from all sides of the house—it's beautiful."



Unobstructed light.
Mmmmmmm.


















Have you ever lived in or loved a lovely craftsman?

Peace to you right where you are.

  1. We live in a Craftsman house in Northern California and this is the 2nd one we have remodeled. There is nothing like them, pure and sensible designs; quality made; classic and timeless. The rooms just flow and mine, like yours is filled with light. Love the windows and build-ins. Tall ceilings, beautiful floors. Once you live in one, you fall in love. Thanks for sharing photos of your beautiful Craftsman.
