Craftsman Homes in Raleigh and the Triangle

The Craftsman home style began to gain popularity in America in the 1860s. It evolved from the British Arts and Crafts movement, which emphasized the importance of handcrafting versus industrial mass production. However, this lead to expensive materials and labor costs and it was mostly wealthier families that could afford homes that were completely crafted by hand.
