bungalow

[Indian bangla,=house], dwelling built in a style developed from that of a form of rural house in India. The original bungalow typically has one story, few rooms, and a maximum of cross drafts, with high ceilings, unusually large window and door openings, and verandas on all sides to shade the rooms from the intense light and tropical heat. Dwellings of this general type became popular in S California, with numerous differences in plan and materials, and were termed bungalows. The word thus came to be used for a cottage or for any small house with verandas covered by low, wide eaves.

Bungalow

A one-story frame house, or a summer cottage, often surrounded by a large covered veranda, with a widely bracketed gable roof; often built of rustic materials.

bungalow

A small one-story or one-and-a-half-story house, usually having a low profile and of wood-frame construction, often having a porch. Although found elsewhere, such houses were relatively low in cost in the early 20th century in America because they could be built according to plans taken from available pattern books, or could be purchased as early as 1908 as precut boards and timbers ready for assembly. Sometimes called a bungaloid-style house. Also see prefabricated house.
