Well that is a good start....but

What are the Oppositions points?. Why is Style significant?; why not colonial or contemporary?

Have you read "Craftsman Homes" By Gustav Stickley?

Are your arguments hunches?, theory? or are they based on facts.

If the Craftsman Style is so superior, way was it usurped by subsequent styles?

What about regionalism or context?... a craftsman house may make sense in Pasadena CA or Mountain Lakes NJ (where I live), but what about Cape May NJ or Lexington MA?

What makes Craftsman Homes so flexible? What does it say about "life style" that other "styles" don't.
