In their recent book, bungalow experts Jane Powell and Linda Svendsen identify the finer points and visual characteristics that make a bungalow a true bungalow, and show how to incorporate these important details into a small home. The authors skillfully provide an explanation for how to identify details and blend them together, and offer insight into the Arts and Crafts philosophy in the back of a bungalow’s uses.
A sleeping porch, a pergola, an exposed rafter tail, an extensive use of wood, stone, and brick: none of these features alone characterize a bungalow. Then again, with Bungalow Details: Exterior, someone can change into a bungalow expert, and be capable to optimistically spot a true bungalow when they see one.
