Bungalow (1900-1930)

The word “bungalow” comes from India, where it is used to describe low, single story houses with large verandas. The American version is usually a cozy, 1 or 1½ story building with wide, overhanging gables which form a deep porch at the front of the house which is supported by heavy piers or posts. Frequently, there are dormer windows. The natural quality of the building materials is often emphasized, with stone showing up as cobble or boulder and shingle or stucco used for texture.
