Types of bungalow

American Craftsman bungalow The American Craftsman bungalow typified the common styles of the American Arts and Crafts movement, with common features usually including: low-pitch roof lines on a gabled or hipped roof; deeply overhanging eaves; exposed rafters or decorative brackets under the eaves; and a front porch beneath an extension of the main roof. A couple of the manufacturing companies that produced kits and could be purchased from catalogs for construction on sites during the turn of the 19th century were the Sears Company and YePlanry. California bungalow The California Bungalow was a widely popular 1 story variation on the bungalow in America from 1910 to 1925. It was also widely popular in Australia within the period 1910-1940. Ultimate bungalow The term ultimate bungalow is most commonly used to describe the very large and detailed Craftsman-style homes of such California architects as Greene and Greene, Bernard Maybeck, and Julia Morgan. Chicago bungalow A 1925 Chicago bungalow The majority of Chicago bungalows were built between 1910 and 1940. They were typically constructed of brick (some including decorative accents), with one and one-half stories and a full basement. At one point, nearly a third of the houses in the Chicago area were bungalows.[citation needed] One primary difference between the Chicago bungalow and other types is that the gables are parallel to the treet, rather than perpendicular. Like many other local homes, Chicago bungalows are relatively narrow,[8] being an average of 20 feet (6.1 m) wide on a standard 24-foot (7.3 m) or 25-foot (7.6 m) wide city lot. Their veranda (porch) may either be open or partially enclosed (if enclosed, it may further be used to extend the interior rooms). [edit]Milwaukee bungalow A large fraction of the older houses in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, are bungalows in a similar Arts and Crafts style to those of Chicago, but usually with the gable perpendicular to the street. Also, many Milwaukee bungalows have white stucco on the lower portion of the exterior. Michigan bungalow There are numerous examples of Arts and Crafts bungalows built from 1910 to 1925 in the metro-Detroit area, including Royal Oak, Hazel Park, Highand Park and Ferndale. Keeping in line with the principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, the bungalows were constructed using local building materials. [edit]Bungalow colony A special use of the term "bungalow" developed in the greater New York City area, between the 1930s and 1970s to denote a cluster of small rental summer homes, usually in the Catskill Mountains in the area known as the Borscht Belt. First and second generation Jewish-American families were especially likely to rent such homes. The old bungalow colonies continue to exist in the Catskills, mainly occupied today by Hassidic Jews.
