The craftsman style originated in late nineteenth-century England. At the time Britain was experiencing a massive industrial revolution like nothing that had ever been encountered. From this rose the Arts & Crafts Movement which was all about rejecting the new, mass-produced construction style in favor or handcrafted works made by artisans. This push-back against bland is what led to the classic hallmarks of the craftsman style. Sloping roof lines and the charming architectural details. This style that connects to people who love time-honored craftsmanship and ornamental detail has influenced the shed world in addition to homes.
For sheds, the style displays itself in structural door details, transom windows, door hinge design, ornate window trim and carriage style double doors. Craftsman style was always intended for the working man. What better for a backyard workshop or art studio. Another hallmark of craftsman style is functionality.
