Craftsman Home Plans
? A bungalow floor plan is like a more narrow and compact version of a Craftsman home. Due to this kinship, these designs are sometimes referred to as Craftsman bungalow house plans.
Bungalow floor plans are a subset within the Arts and Crafts movement (1895 to 1935), which grew from a reaction to the ornate Victorian architecture of 1870 to 1900. Embracing simplicity, handiwork, and natural materials, bungalows are the definition of coziness. Bungalows are often one-and-a-half stories, with low-pitched roofs, shallow "shed" dormers and deep porches. Heavy stone porch supports, columns that taper as they ascend, and wide projecting eaves are all typical appointments of bungalows, as are exposed eave brackets. Exterior materials include natural siding, stone, and/or stucco.
