Chicago Bungalow

Characteristics:
• Narrow setbacks from the street and between neighboring houses encourage tight-knit cottage communities.
• Intricate brick patterns and masonry details emulate the city's great historic architecture.
• A diminutive dormer window calls little attention to the second story to reduce the structure's bulk and scale.
