Potential bungalow home owners can choose from many styles of bungalow home plans. One of the more popular plans to look at if you are in the market for building a new bungalow would be the craftsman bungalow house plans. These plans consist of a prominent front porch beneath the main roof.
Bungalows became popular during the time frame that was heavily influenced by the American Arts and Craft Movement. It was natural that homes of this time frame emulated the arts and craft feel of the time.
Bungalows and cottages are synonymous with comfy warm fires, apple pies baking and that good feeling of constant comfortableness. I envision pods of quaint single level, wide, simply designed houses that offer easy access to major living areas like the living room and dining area. Everything that was needed for day to day living was compacted into these relatively small style homes.
The bungalows that come to mind for me had nice enclosed porches in the front of the house and the most appealing amenities were their perfectly sized yards with surrounding trees. The foliage of the trees always provided the perfect amount of shade at the right times during the warm and cold seasons. Dogs were resting on porches, children were playing tag, birds were chirping and there was peacefulness that could not be duplicated in any other home design.
