Lots for sale in a private traditional community being developed in Petoskey, Michigan.


Craftsman Style Homes
Following is a brief explanation of the heritage and background of traditional craftsman styled homes like those found in Resort Gardens northern Michigan community.
 

Craftsman style homes were developed in the early 1900's – during the industrial revolution and a rapid rise of the middle class. The style borrows heavily from bungalow homes originating in India.

Craftsman style homes are easily recognized by unique, consistent shapes. They’re one or two stories high and simple in construction. They nearly always forgo the fanciful ornamentation found in Victorian type homes in favor of more significant, substantial architectural elements.

This image, provided by Jannis Vann and Associates, illustrates some architectural elements commonly found in craftsman style homes.

  • Cross-gabled, low-pitched roofs

  • Constructed of local building materials including wood and stone
