Dogwood Bungalow - 1923
The bungalow, a true American vernacular, can be found from coast to coast, in every region of the country, gently adapted to its surroundings, climate, local materials and immediate setting. This classic example from Maryland embodies a common type, simply roofed with a deep gabled attic and large dormers. The attic efficiently accommodates 3 bedrooms. The main level comprises an Entry, Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen, each space freely flowing into the next. With only the smallest of modifications this plan can be adapted for many different needs and settings.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. Some possible adaptions might be to glaze a portion of the front porch to increase the size of the Living Room, to open the Kitchen and Dining Room to each other to create a Family Room, and to extend a small wing off the back to allow for a main level Bedroom and Bath. Although ideal for a flat site, these plans would also work on a moderately sloping one. This house would be comfortable in a town, suburb or country setting. Including porches, this house has outside dimensions of approximately 26'x40'.

SHIPPING: Your drawings are shipped to you, by US Postal Service, rolled, not folded, in a Priority Mail tube.
IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are NOT complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL Bungalow Style home, not a pseudo-bungalow tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf. (BU001)
