Predominantly built in the early 20th century, Bungalow homes are a more compact version of the popular Craftsman style. They are typically square in plan or deeper than they are wide, making them perfect for small urban lots. A full-width porch may be supported by stone, brick, or paired wood columns at the front and sometimes also at the back. Craftsman features like a low-slung roof with wide eaves and exposed rafter tails often appear in bungalow plans, though decorative details are restrained. Bungalow building materials are inspired by nature, utilizing stone, stucco, wood shingles and clapboard. The so-called California bungalow developed in the 1910s and accentuated porches and garden connections. The interior of a bungalow home is warm and inviting with plenty of windows, space-saving built-ins such as hutches and sideboards, and a floor plan that accommodates families both large and small. Bungalow homes are also perfect for empty nesters, with bedrooms and living space all on one level. Related collections: Craftsman House Plans, Narrow Lot House Plans, and House Plans with Porch.
