Craftsman House Plans and Bungalow Home Designs by

Our Craftsman and Bungalow Designs feature modern Open Floor Plans

What is a Craftsman Style House Plan or a Bungalow Home Design?  Many of you may think of your Grandparents house.  A simple gable roof form with large dormers, wood brackets, deep roof overhangs, a generous front porch, a stone chimney, clapboard siding and a beautiful wood front door.  Our Craftsman and Bungalow Home Plans take it to the next level by featuring modern open floor plans for today’s family.


The Craftsman style was the dominant style for smaller house plans throughout America from the early 1900’s until the early 1920’s.  Magazines and Pattern Books made the style popular.  The craftsman and bungalow are essentially variants of the same style.  Think of the Bungalow as a lower slung, single story version of a craftsman house plan.  


For us at Simply Elegant Home Designs our interpretation of a Craftsman or Bungalow House Plans as a home that is modest and simple yet at the same time rich and sophisticated.  We think that it is a great architectural style to emulate.


At Simply Elegant Home Designs many of our house plans are inspired by original Craftsman and Bungalow designs.  All of our home designs are modestly scaled and have attention to massing, roof form and detail that make them reminiscent of a classic Craftsman or Bungalow home.  But of course all of our Craftsman and Bungalow House Plans are outfitted with our well laid out and functional interiors.
