A bungalow is a one- or one-and- a-half story dwelling. Good enough, except that since the period when most bungalows were constructed – roughly 1880 to 1930 in the United States – literally every type of house has at one time been called a bungalow. Two-story houses built on the grounds of hotels are still called bungalows, for example. And to further muddy the definition, the great Southern California architect Charles Sumner Greene went out of his way to call his Gamble house (1909) in Pasadena, Calif., a bungalow. Instead, the Gamble house is a sprawling two-story residence with a third-floor pool room.
Raised bungalow: A raised bungalow is one in which the basement is partially above ground. The benefit is that more light can enter the basement with above ground windows in the basement. A raised bungalow typically has a foyer at ground level that is halfway between the first floor and the basement. Thus further has the advantage of creating a foyer with a very high ceiling without the expense of raising the roof or creating a skylight.
Ranch bungalow: A ranch bungalow is a bungalow organized so that bedrooms are on one side and public areas (kitchen, living/dining/family rooms) are on the other side. If there is an attached garage, the garage is on the public side of the building so that a direct entrance is possible, when this is allowed by legislation. On narrower lots, public areas are at the front of the building and such an organization is typically not called a ranch bungalow. Such buildings are often smaller and have only two bedrooms in the back as required.
At the turn of the century bungalows took America by storm. These small houses, some costing as little as $900, helped fulfill many Americans wishes for their own home, equipped with all the latest conveniences. Central to the bungalows popularity was the idea that simplicity and artistry could harmonize in one affordable house.
