The Arts & Crafts movement popularized more than a century ago is currently enjoying a revival--and with good reason. Finally, the "lowly" bungalow, once considered too small and style-starved, is gaining popularity as new bungalow communities crop up across the nation. With its emphasis on handcrafted beauty, quality workmanship, and respect for natural materials, today's bungalow style offers friendly streetscapes and sensible, ecologically oriented homes that work for modern families. Bungalow Plans contains house plans that may be modest in size by today's standards, but integrate the style and timeless charm of the past with a modern point of view.
