The American Bungalow is not just a Style--it's a Spirit!
America is a nation of bungalows--cozy homes where you will find old-fashioned values of family, simplicity, economy, craftsmanship and a life lived in harmony with nature. Fannie Mae still uses the bungalow image as their symbol of the American dream and film makers often use bungalows as settings for their movies and television programs. Perfect examples are movies "To Kill a Mockingbird," "The Changling" and television programs like "The Ghost Whisperer."
Look for homes with the bungalow's architectural details: Tapered porch columns, wood clapboard exteriors, cedar shakes on gables, rafter tails and decorative brackets, stone or brick accents, wide overhangs, and colors that blend with nature. Bungalows have lots of spaces (porches, pergolas and patios) that bring the outdoors into the home and natural views can be seen from their numerous windows. Bungalows are practical; no larger than they need to be from under 1,000 sq. ft. to over 2,500 sq. ft.
Bungalows look and feel like home--a place where you can raise a family, share good times with friends and family and build memories your children and your children's children will pass down through the generations. When you drive up to a bungalow, you can't help but smile for you will get the sense that you are "home"--where you are always welcome and at peace with the world.
