Bungalows are great homes because they are typically compact and efficient. They are nice and simple. For people that need a lot of space, I would not recommend a bungalow. If you bought one, you are likely to screw it up with some sort of strange addition. Not all additions are bad, just most of them.
One unfortunate thing about bungalows is that they rarely have enough storage space. Our home has two closets, one in each bedroom. There is no broom closet, linen closet or coat closet. Luckily, we do have a finished basement and this has some additional storage areas. Having the basement is great for our tools and things that we don’t use everyday but it is not so good for socks, underwear, shirts and other daily items.
Over the next few weeks, we hope to remedy some of our storage issues in the house. One project is a hall mirror and coat rack and shelf. I will be installing this as a built-in over the next couple weeks. With any luck, it will be completed by Christmas. The project is a piece of another old house, a wardrobe that I found on craigslist. I hope to refinish it and put it in the bedroom. It would be great if some day we could have it installed as a built-in. I just don’t know where. Perhaps when I screw up the Tiny Bungalow with our addition.
