Houstonist - one of the now innumerable -ist cityblogs (SFist, Gothamist, etc.) - has a weekly feature called shelterporn where interesting for-sale homes in the area are profiled. They recently profiled a pretty and somewhat representative Houston-area Craftsman bungalow:
Outside, the house has a great wraparound porch overlooking Welch Street, a private back yard and at least one palm tree — we've always wanted a palm tree, though we hear they can be more trouble than they're worth. But this isn't about practicality, is it? Inside, the rooms are lighted by cool Craftsman windows; there are pocket doors, a corner fireplace in the living room, an open kitchen/dining room that would be ideal for entertaining, and a master bedroom with a bay window.
