The typical bungalow is a one story house with gently pitched
broad gables. A lower gable usually covers an opening or screened porch with
the larger gable covering the main part of the house. Larger Bungalows have
intersecting cross gables. Bungalows usually have an exterior chimney.
The siding is usually wood shingles which were originally stained brown. There
are also some Bungalow constructed from stucco or brick. The construction
style was made popular by the Sears and Roebuck catalog, because precut
lumber, nails, and doors could be shipped to the site.
