Publisher Comments:

What defines an Arts & Crafts bungalow? What makes it different from other small, one-or one-and-a-half story houses? Many say that it's hard to describe, but you know one when you see it. And knowing one when you see it is all about knowing how to spot the details. With Arts & Crafts homes, it is often the way the details are combined, and the philosophy they represent, that makes a house an authentic Arts & Crafts bungalow. It is not just knee braces in the gable, or a river rock column, or a three-part front window. In their latest book, bungalow experts Jane Powell and Linda Svendsen identify the finer points and visual characteristics that make a bungalow a bungalow, and show how to incorporate these important details into your own bungalow. The authors skillfully explain how to identify the details and the ways of blending them, offering insight into the Arts & Crafts philosophy behind their use. A sleeping porch, a pergola, an exposed rafter tail, an extensive use of wood, stone, and brick: none of these things by themselves characterizes a bungalow. With Bungalow Details: Exterior, however, anyone can become a bungalow expert, and be able to confidently "know a bungalow when they see one."

What defines an Arts and Crafts bungalow? What makes it different from other small, one or one-and-a-half story houses?

In Bungalow Details: Exterior, you'll learn of the elements that make up the whole experience: sleeping porches, knee braces, river rock columns, pillars, three-part front windows, low-pitched roofs, shingle siding, art glass light fixtures, clinker brick chimneys, pergolas, exposed rafter tails, and an extensive use of wood, stone, and brick. None of these features by themselves characterize a bungalow, but it is often the way these details and others are combined-and the philosophy they represent-that makes a house a true, authentic Arts and Crafts bungalow.

The Title is very interesting. It doesn't describe any particular style that I'm aware of.
