Springing out of the Arts and Crafts movement that arose more than a century ago, the history of Craftsman style can be attributed to two architects, brothers Charles and Henry Greene. Their original work centered on creating bungalows, which featured low pitched roofs and porches for taking advantage of the weather in warmer climates. The style quickly spread and is now used in areas throughout North America.
