The American bungalow home grew out of the Craftsman tradition. But where Craftsman houses have a specific and distinct style bungalow house plans may adopt the details and decorations of a number of different styles. The bungalow home is low, ground hugging, with a large, single gable roofline. Usually of one story, or with a second story contained within the attic, the bungalow home adopts the materials and styles of its surroundings. In the Southwest bungalow homes may be finished in stucco with Mission Style details. In the North-East they may be shingled, with river rock porch columns. They can even take on the trappings of Colonial Revival and Queen Anne decorations. But they always remain bungalow homes, designed for simple, economical living.

Broadway Livery Bungalow - 1917

Here is a spacious example of a bungalow, from Idaho, with a wide front porch, a wing extending back and several rooms in the attic. It is wide open and spreads across its site in expansive comfort.

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. The basic shell could be configured many different ways inside. The current plan has a Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen running the length of one side of the house, with several bedrooms and a bathroom running the other length. In addition there are bedrooms in the attic. This plan is ideal for a flat site. This house would be comfortable in a town, suburb or country setting. Including porches, this house has outside dimensions of approximately 47' x 81'.

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.
