Washington Craftsman home features dutch doors worth drooling over

Typical Craftsman-style homes have low-pitched roofs, but this one takes some creative liberties. Not only does it have a relatively steep rooftop; it opts for single-pane windows instead of multipane, and further, the columns are thin and straight, rather than tapered. All of that being said, many of the defining aspects of this home do embody typical Craftsman-style. 
For one, it's got the characteristic front porch, which, in this case, stretches across the width of the facade. Additionally, this home uses earthy colors inside and out, which is another common trait across the gamut of Craftsman homes.

If ever there was a welcoming porch, this is it. With a row of lovely houses to gaze at across the street, rocking in this suspended bench will be a little bit like paradise. 
This dutch door add a quaint, country touch to this otherwise modern abode. It'll be perfect for keeping the kids from running outside while you're letting in a little breeze. 
The living room isn't huge, but it's not small, either. Separated from the kitchen and dining room by nothing more than a rafter, the house has a really open feeling to it. The midcentury table legs accompanied by a rustic top adds an artistic flair to the room.
This first shot of the kitchen does a lot to show off the pairing of the floor and ceiling — both hardwood, but laid perpendicular to each other. There's no shortage of counterspace in this kitchen. 
Another shot of the kitchen and dining room, which, with the living room, make up this house's "great room." It's easy to imagine getting dinner ready in such a spacious chamber. With ample counterspace, and with plenty of cabinets, storing all of your kitchen gadgets will be a breeze. 
This first shot of the master suite shows a bit of the bathroom, and it also shows a door presumably leading to a back porch. There's a lot of space in this bedroom — a fact that becomes more apparent in the next image.
Seeing the master suite from this side, it's clear that there's plenty of room for activities. There's even space for a fainting couch near the bed. 
This second bedroom doesn't skimp on space, either. Fitting in (what appears to be) two queen-sized beds, separated by a large skylight, this room would be perfect for guests, or for grown-up kids coming home to visit.
