Arts & Crafts

Arts & Crafts, or Craftsman architecture and its variations rose during a transitional period between 1910 and 1925. Exemplified by simple sturdy molding and architectural details most commonly created with Douglas fir in all areas, and gumwood, white oak, and birch in the formal areas of a home. After 1910 huge rafts made of fir, pine, and cedar were floated from the northwest to San Diego for homebuilding and locally produced millwork. The small to medium sized home were built with mail order plans or complete precut home kits. Examples of the Craftsman architecture can be found throughout many of the older neighborhoods such as Coronado, South Park, North Park, University Heights, and Mission Hills.
