About My Bungalow


Originally the front had a full width of the house porch, but the bedroom to the left was extended out to the front of the porch in 1970.

We were told the house was built in 1918.

Favorite Details


Great lighting comes in through all windows, and the repainted wood surfaces reflect all that light. The layout of the house is open and free-flowing. The add-ons were done so intelligently so as to not destroy original sight-lines

Lessons Learned

  • Check the roof carefully!
  • Make sure the foundation is fully strapped down.

The stucco siding and flat roof give this bungalow a real Southwestern flavor. Thanks for the photos!
