Set almost invariably in a lush garden, the early-twentieth-century bungalow allowed countless suburbanites to get "back to nature" without leaving the cozy confines of their own property. The bungalow front porch epitomized the indoor-outdoor lifestyle associated with this popular new form of housing. Furnished as an extension of the adjoining living room, it offered a comfortable spot from which to enjoy unimpeded views of the surrounding landscape. Because the front porch typically defined a home's street presenceproviding what realtors refer to as "curb appeal"it also represented one of the most distinctive features of bungalow architecture.

Review quote

"The small books...would make great gifts for a friend or relative who's just starting to explore Arts and Crafts architecture....The photography and captions are, of course, the heart of these books, and in them the author and photographer succinctly capture the variety of forms, textures, styles and colors that have been, and continue to be, adapted to the Craftsman bungalow archetype.
