In the original and truest sense, a Craftsman house is one constructed from house plans published in Gustav Stickley's magazine The Craftsman (published between 1901 and 1916) or sold through his catalogs. The magazine promoted the ideals of the Arts and Crafts Movement with articles, how-to plans and advertising, and Stickley used the magazine and his catalogs to sell house plans, furniture and other Arts and Crafts style accessories.
