Welcome to the 2011 version of the Annual "Virtual" Bungalow tour. You should be arriving after just visiting Stucco House. For this year's tour, I thought it would be good to explain what a bungalow is and show some of the characteristics of my place that make it a bungalow. When I typically tell people that I have a bungalow, I usually get the question, "what is a bungalow?" Everyone has seen this type of house but fewer could describe it if asked.
The primary characteristic of every bungalow is that it is a one-story structure or all of the main living areas of the home are on one story. Some people have an attic space or bedroom on a second floor but to be called a bungalow, the exterior wall of that room would not be exposed on the exterior of the home. Instead, it would be under the roof. Bungalows typically have large low-slung roofs with wide eaves that give them a horizontal character.
