About My Bungalow
We just bought it. It has lots of windows, casement I think they're called. All the doors are French doors, but they were probably replaced from the original. It has crawl space underneath. It has a gabled roof with some accents. It has a second floor with two small bedrooms with sloped ceilings. The kitchen is large with eat-in spaces and lots of windows. Three small steps lead you up the very small porch. It is wood siding; built in 1927. I'm sending a picture. I'd love to know the architectural style, and what color to repaint it. It is currently white w/gray trim. Will keep white but need to choose trim.
I love the gable roof, the beautiful hardwood floors, the setting amongst old oak trees. I love the many many windows, the sloping ceilings and the coziness of the place. It's so lovely. The walls have crown mouldings and baseboards. Every detail is beautiful.
I need to build a screened porch, somewhere to the right. All the land is in the front; it has virtually no back yard.

Your new home has such an interesting shape! It might have begun as a gabled bungalow with a shed-roofed dormer, something like these houses:
