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.

Longview Farm Bungalow A - 1924

The bungalow at Longview farm, in Jackson County, Missouri, is an efficient example of a classic Bungalow design, perfect for a narrow lot. Though compact it still has comfortably large rooms with an easy flow of space from the front to the back of the house. And of course, there is the generous front porch that makes bungalow homes so comfortable.

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 first floor has a large Living Room, opening off this a Dining Room, and moving towards the back, a Kitchen with Breakfast Area. There are also 2 bedrooms and a bathroom on this floor. A staircase leads to the attic, lit by large and small dormers as well as windows on each side. The attic could easily be arranged to create a study/home office at the stair landing, a bathroom, a walk-in closet and a comfortably sized Master Bedroom. Although ideal for a flat site, these plans would also work on a moderately sloping one. This house is ideally arranged for a narrow city lot, though it would be equally comfortable in a suburb or country setting. Including porches, the main house has outside dimensions of approximately 24'x59'.

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.
