Between the early 1900’s to the 1930’s, the bungalow was the dominant home style in the U.S. The simple, small one-and-a-half-story homes boast a sloping roof, a front porch and sparse décor. And each neighborhood was stocked with the style.
In the Midwest, entire subdivisions were bungalows. In fact, the housing style still represents about one-third of Chicago’s single-family housing.
