American Craftsman bungalow : The American Craftsman bungalow typified the styles of the American Arts and Crafts movement, with common features usually including low-pitched roof lines on a gabled or hipped roof, deeply overhanging eaves, exposed rafters or decorative brackets under the eaves, and a front porch or veranda beneath an extension of the main roof.
The bungalow craze took off after the turn of the century, during an era in which Americans were obsessed with the notion of health or simply attracted to economic opportunities in the booming West. Before World War I, a small bungalow could be built for $900. A good-sized bungalow cost maybe $3,500.
Bungalows became larger and took on Western Arts and Crafts style while maintaining the original Eastern shape. Now, you will find that they often overlap with Craftsman house plans, but they are typically capped at one or 1.5 stories.
The first two bungalows in England were built in Westgate-on-Sea in 1869 or 1870. A bungalow was a prefabricated single-story building used as a seaside holiday home. Manufacturers included Boulton & Paul Ltd, who made corrugated iron bungalows as advertised in their 1889 catalogue, which were erected by their men on the purchasers light brickwork foundation. An example is Castle Bungalow at Peppercombe, North Devon owned by the Landmark Trust; it was built by Boulton and Paul in the 1920s.
