  1. The Chicago Bungalow is the main source of housing design in the Chicago area. These bungalow style houses make up about a third of the city's housing. Many of these were built during beginning of the 20th century and the period after WWII. Posted by: tofer on Apr 06, 2008 (1) (0)
  2. The house featured during the theme song of the old sitcom Family Matters isn't a bungalow, but the one-story brick house to the left (in the picture) is a Chicago-style bungalow. The Winslow house isn't made of brick and appears to have three floors. Still, it has the veranda and the overall narrowness just like typical Chicago bungalows, which at one point made up half the households in Chicago. Posted by: Anonymous on Feb 09, 2010 (0) (0)
