Bungalow House Plans
The word "bungalow" comes from the Indian word bangla, which refers to thatched roof cottages with low roofs and porches built around them. A bungalow style home as we know it was created when the British adapted this classic style of Indian architecture into their vacation homes. Bungalow homes are usually one story, however, our collection features many one and half story designs. Hallmarks of the bungalow style are low-pitched roofs with wide, overhanging eaves, large porches and stone chimneys with prominently placed fireplaces. This style remains an American favorite because of its good looks, cozy atmosphere and eco-friendly design. You may also want to look at our Craftsman house plans, which are very similar in style to the Bungalow.
