Bungalow Details is the ultimate resource book and will show you how to incorporate these details into your home's design. Included are historical sidebars and general how-to information that will enable you to appreciate, re-create, or apply these details in planning your unique bungalow.

One of the cover photos is of a stone colonnade at my friend's house in Eagle Rock. Inside you will find two photos of my Eagle Rock home, the Reverend Alfred W. Hare house.


Bungalow: The Ultimate Arts and Crafts Home

Jane details the origin of these fabulous houses while Linda illuminates the text with her exquisite photos. This book should have been named The Bungalow Travelogue because it showcases terrific houses in all parts of the country.

I love this book because there are several pictures of my L.A. house in it. I showed a client my bedroom here in Seminole Heights and she exclaimed, “I saw this room in a magazine!.” Close. It’s in this book (which she owns) - or at least a pretty good replica is.

Read about this book in the San Francisco Chronicle.
