Choosing a New Craftsman Style Home

Craftsman floor plans | Craftsman new homes in RaleighFirst, what is a Craftsman style home?  In the Raleigh area, a Craftsman style home usually evokes visions of stone accents or square, tapered front porch columns, exposed rafters or decorative brackets, low pitched rooflines with overhanging eaves, and deep covered porches.  Inside, Craftsman elements can include simpler trim styles, built in details, hardwood flooring, and lots of windows.
