Bungalow (1900-1930)

The word “bungalow” comes from India, where it is used to describe low, single-story houses with large verandas. 

The American version is usually a cozy, one or one and a half story building with wide, overhanging gables that form a deep porch at the front of the house, which is supported by heavy piers or posts. Frequently, there are dormer windows. 

The natural quality of the building materials is often emphasized, with stone showing up as cobble or boulder and shingle or stucco used for texture.
