The year is 1910. Imagine walking along a picturesque street populated by cozy cottages with welcoming front porches under leafy trees, and you’ll have a good idea of Bungalow style. Though sometimes considered interchangeable with Craftsman architecture, a Bungalow actually refers to any modestly sized, one- or one-and-a-half story home with a low-pitched roof consisting of one or more gables. This template may bear the traces of any architectural style from Spanish Colonial to Swiss Chalet, Neoclassical to Prairie depending on regional influences. Grounded in the philosophy of simple practicality, Bungalow house plans were popularized by mail-order catalogs during a time when affordability was key. Bungalow floor plans offer light-drenched interiors and open floor plans with few hallways. The emphasis is on convenience and casual living. Whether you’re looking for a starter home or an empty nest to make your own, you’re sure to find the right-sized home in our collection of Bungalow home plans.
