Modest footprints make bungalow house plans and the related Prairie and Craftsman styles ideal for small or narrow lots. Open, informal floor plans (usually one or one-and-a-half stories) make the most of square footage, with rooms arranged for easy accessibility and maximum livability. Bungalow house plans feature low-slung rooflines and organic details that enhance harmony in the landscape. Wide, inviting porches answer to homeowners' demands for outdoor living space. Overall, the Bungalow plan benefits from generally simple massing that saves on construction costs.
