Welcome to Craftsman Home Remodeling
The Craftsman Home Remodeling website was created so people can see what goes into the construction of an Arts and Crafts
, Greene and Greene
style, Craftsman house. The Craftsman style is also commonly referred to as Craftsman Bungalow
or California Bungalow
. In general, California bungalows tend to be smaller in size, where Greene and Greene Craftsman houses trend towards larger sizes and are sometimes referred to as super bungalows. With this home remodel I realized that I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a real work of art. As a result, I tried to be as authentic as I could and every little detail mattered.
This Craftsman Home Remodel site can be used as a reference for someone about to start or in the middle of a home remodel, bathroom remodel, kitchen remodel, garage remodel, or any other type of house remodel. Also, anyone interested in the Arts and Crafts movement or Greene and Greene style houses will probably find the history of this home remodel quite interesting and, of course, the 2000+ construction photos
really help to see what was involved and shows off the final detail that was a result of all the hard work.
I describe lessons learned during the process and even provide a 'Finish Store
' (still coming) so you can find all of your finish materials and links to the sites. If you have any questions on something used in the house, please feel free to ask me
To get started, I would suggest starting with Why We Did This
which shows before and after shots of the house exterior
and our rationale for starting this massive project.

I use Punch Software's Architectural Series for laying out the house and individual rooms so I can get a 3-D look before construction starts. I also like to use it to see what my landscaping will look like in a few years. It's super easy to use!
