The Sunshine Bungalow

The bungalow became the most popular Arts and Crafts-period home design, made popular in the early 1900s.  Modeled after traditional homes in India and popularized in California, the bungalow was a low, functional, spreading house. It emphasized horizontal lines, overhanging roofs, simple porches, and bands of windows that brought the outside in. Bungalow home kits were available, pre-cut and shipped via rail, through many magazines and mail-order catalogs, like the Sears & Roebuck catalog.  Designer and architect Gustav Stickley promoted a version of the bungalow in his magazine The CraftsmanThe "Sunshine Bungalow" was offered as a kit in 1917.  The cost of this home was $1,096.30.
