The style, which has its roots in England, was an architectural outgrowth of the late nineteenth century American Arts And Crafts movement, especially the work of California architects Charles and Henry Greene and advocate Gustave Stickley with his publication, The Craftsman. Bungalows executed in this style are usually one-and-a-half stories high, set on cobblestone foundations, with low-pitched roofs, wide overhanging eaves, exposed rafter tails, and prominent eave brackets. Full or partial front porches are supported by stout, often tapered (battered) square half-columns. Continuous shed dormers are frequently located above the front porch. Craftsman detailing was also adapted to larger two and three-story buildings, especially the porch and eave details.
