Bungalow house plans are some of the most common homes found in older neighborhoods of America. These homes became very popular from the 1910s to the 1930s. Bungalows are generally narrow but deep homes often with detached or no garages. These house plans are usually one story but sometimes 1½ stories high. Bungalows usually have a small porch with columns set in large brick bases. These porches are often enclosed with screens to keep the bugs away on summer nights on the porch.
