Hi all! THANKS so much for adding your awesome photos to the group. If you have craftsman details, please add your photos in a new topic here so we can all see them (because we love them, too). The main pool is reserved for house pics... if you aren't sure, have a look at our older pages for an idea. THANKS!!!
Please keep adding your lovely photos to the pool. It's proving to be a great collection for fans of craftsman homes.

Group Description

Craftsman bungalows are homes from the Arts & Crafts era (late 1800s to early 1900s) with a very distinct and charming style. They're often found close to rail lines where they could be easily shipped by makers like Sears.

This is a pool for exterior shots of the original and traditional houses built during that period, hopefully in as much of their entirety as you can get, and perhaps with one or two alternative views. Our goal is to make the pool feel as if we're taking a walk in a neighborhood of craftsmans or on a virtual historic house tour.

LOTS OF THANK YOU'S for reading this part (please):

**Feel free to post photos of as many houses as you'd like. However, please limit to two or three photos of the same house photographed at the same time (e.g. different angles or close ups -- when you have included the 'full view' of the house).

**Please only submit exterior photographs of original bungalows and houses that were built during the early 1900s period (traditional style, with unseen or unobstrusive/integrated additions and with original open porches, for example). See the pool for the types of photos we get excited about!

**Please exclude homes that have been overly altered (by modernization, closed/screened in porches make us too sad to accept to the pool, huge additions that interfere with the original architecture, non-period roofing, etc.) and modern-era revivals (we love some of these, so please start a new topic to share them).

**We think all Arts & Crafts detail is interesting! For photos related to interiors and ephemera -- furniture, lighting, fireplaces, interiors, eaves, doors, built-ins -- please submit to the wonderful Hewn & Hammered group or start a new topic highlighting the feature you'd like to share.

Any extra information about the houses in your photos would be very much appreciated but absolutely not required. General location in tags or description is nice, too.
