Unabridged Dover (2003) republication of Beautiful Bungalows, originally published by Building Age and The Builders' Journal, New York, 1923. 43 double-page spreads of halftones and line illustrations. 96pp. 9x12. Paperbound. ISBN 0-486-43193-2.
Practical, convenient, and attractive, the American bungalow has long been popular among families looking for affordable residences. This handy reference, originally published by a New York firm and now reproduced from a rare edition, features more than 45 handsome bungalows built from Maine to California in the early 1920s.
Forty well-known architects of the period provided designs for such structures as a charming, three-room colonial suitable for a small family, a farm bungalow with a novel siding treatment, a handsome dwelling with a basement garage, and opulent homes of stucco. Exterior and interior views, floor plans, elevations, and such special features as a massive stone fireplace and hardwood beamed ceilings are also depicted.
An ideal reference for preservationists and restorers, this volume will delight Twenties enthusiasts.
