California Bungalow
--The style, often called the California Bungalow, was most popular between 1900 and 1920 and evolved into the Craftsman movement. An offshoot, the Chicago Bungalow, appeared in the Midwest, also in the early part of the century. It's characterized by few material details, an offset entryway, and a projecting bay on the facade.

To learn more about this style, read the Architecture Coach column on The Beauty of a Bungalow.
