Craftsman homes are typically built of real wood, stone and brick. Built-in furniture and light fixtures. Built-ins were the hallmark feature of the Arts and Crafts era. Built-in cabinets allowed the furnishings to be part of the architecture, ensuring design unity and economic use of space. Even the light fixtures are often part of the design. Fireplace.

feature a dominant fireplace in the living room and a large exterior chimney. Porches. Most homes in the Craftsman style have porches with thick square or round columns and stone porch supports. Low-pitched roofs. The homes typically have a low roof with wide eaves and triangular brackets. Exposed beams. The beams on the porch and inside the house are often exposed. Open floor plan.

Geodesic domes provide huge, open spaces while providing structural integrity with minimal materials Most of these utilize large windows for

natural light and energy efficiency Many of them incorporate solar panels for maximum energy efficiency Revival Due to recent global issues with global warming, need for new forms of energy, etc. These types of domed houses are coming back due to their high efficiency in both space and energy.
