Overview

The Arts & Crafts movement popularized more than a century ago is currently enjoying a revival--and with good reason. Finally, the "lowly" bungalow, once considered too small and style-starved, is gaining popularity as new bungalow communities crop up across the nation. With its emphasis on handcrafted beauty, quality workmanship, and respect for natural materials, today's bungalow style offers friendly streetscapes and sensible, ecologically oriented homes that work for modern families.

Bungalow Plans contains house plans that may be modest in size by today's standards, but integrate the style and timeless charm of the past with a modern point of view.

Introduction

Have you ever strolled down a beautiful tree-lined street filled with uniquely detailed homes that seem to grow from the landscape, and sensed true harmony between things man-made and natural? Have you been in a room that embraces nature and extends its living spaces to the outdoors? Have you been to a place where neighbors cannot help but share a hello or a cup of morning coffee on a gracious front porch? If so, you have experienced the bungalow.
