HS convenience of all the
rooms of a home being oo one
Door at obvious, and tor this
reason tha great popularity
of the bungalow te . Justified.
There are .oertaln conditions
under which a bungalow 'becomes the
moat appropriate home to build, and still
other conditions under which a bungalow
becomes - I nappropriate.
If your Jot Is somewhat narrow, and lo
cated . between two tall-houses, do not
build a 'bungalow anon It, for It would
give the. bungalow en Insignificant ap
pearance by comparison, that would make
It a poor eel ting proposition, and would
not give the proper outlook, Hght and
air to the -rear rooms. I
A bungalow should never be. built en
a single Inside lot less then sixty-five
f est tn width, unless there are bungalows
on each side and all about tt. The proper
setting for a- bangalow la either a corner
lot. or .double Inside lot. When the
width of the lot makes it possible the
bungalow .will nave a better appearance
if placed with tha broad aids to tha front,
thereby containing more of the rooms ou
the front of the bouse, which adds to the
attractiveness of the Ulterior, from a liv
ing standpoint, and makes the exterior
appearance of the home seem larger
than It really is, which is a good selling
point. ' .
The average homebullder has a wrong
conception . of the cost of a bungalow.
Because. they look small, and have short
length studding, the popular opinion Is
that they cost less than a story and a
half or two-story home. Just what their
relative -cost are to homes of a two
story character depends to a large extent
upon the number of bedrooms, - When
there Is but one bedroom on the' ground
floor, with a small bedroom or twe
under the roof, thereby practically mak
ing It a story and a halt house, the
bungalow would cost but little mors
than a story and a naif bouse, contain
ing all of the bedrooms on ths second
floor. But when there are two, three
and four bedrooms on the second story,
the cost of the bungslow as compared
with the story and a half house contain
ing the same number and the same elsed
rooms Is considerably in favor of the
letter. Tske for a simple example a
house feet by S feet, containing on the
ftrst floor, the' usual living room, with
the stairway at one end, dining room
and kitchen, with three bedrooms, bath
room and stair ball on the second floor.
This house would nave tour foundation
walls, each at feet long, and a roof
feet by feet, allowing for a 3-foot
projection 1 of the eaves all around It,
Placing all of the rooms on the second
floor adjoining the first floor rooms on
the rear, sua . retaining the ball 'as a
connecting passage between the bedrooms
and bathroom, and still retaining a simple
stairway which would be desirable to
reach the attlo specs for storage par
poses, wa would then have a bungalow
t feet by e feet, with two foundation
walls M .feet wide and two foundation
walls e feet long; In other words. 120
feet of foundation wall as 'compared
with a) feet of foundation wall, an in
crease of e fset or St per cent. Twice
as much excavation and a foot W feet
by et feet, an Increase of almost 10 per
oent. Also, In ths two-story house the
celling 'Joist of the Tint story rooms
were at the same tints floor Joist of
ths second story room. Placing the
second story beck of the first story, to
nake a bangalow. means another,. sat
ef floor ''join .to cover the spare of
2S feet by feet. Since the root must
rise in order to properly shed water,
there would be apace enough under ft
in the attlo for several rooms, whether
the space was used or doc
When it comes to' the beating, a litUs
more radiation 1a required for the beat
rising from the first story helps to best
the second story before radiating through
the root, while the second story, being
warm, would not require quite so much as
the first story, as compared to a lack of
these advantages tn the bungalow.
While some contractors would claim
that the difference between the cost of
the above described story and a half
house and the bungalow as described
would approximate between et and M per
cent, that la estimating it a little strong
In average cases. The difference between
the average borne with one bed room and
bath on the second floor and the bunga
low witb one bed room and bath qn the
first floor is about U per cent: the dif
ference between the story and a halt
houss . and the bungalow -with two bed
rooms and bath about 90 per cent, and the
difference between the two combinations
with three bed rooms and bath about M
per cent. Only when there are five or
six bed rooms would ths difference In cost
go as high as W per cent.
The object of this article is not to dis
courage eny one from the building of
bungalows. Built under proper condi
tions, they make the most ideal homes
imaginable, combining those two essential
features of the Ideal home best expressed
by the words "bomeliks and convenient.'
It at more the object of the writer to
place his readers right on the subject of
their cost, so that those who must have
a certain amount of room at the lowest
minimum cost Wll -not attempt .te build
them. t . "
