Buying a Chicago Bungalow
The Chicago bungalow is a classic home style that truly reflects residential development and architecture in the early 20th century. As Chicago’s population started to explode around that time, the need for housing also increased, sparking a building boom that helped shape many of Chicago’s working class neighborhoods. Today, more than 80,000 original Chicago bungalows are still scattered throughout the city’s landscape and remain a very popular option for young or first time home buyers or anyone who appreciates that charm and character of these timeless single-family dwellings.
A Brief History of Bungalows in Chicago
There are tens of thousands of bungalows in Chicago today, making it one of the city’s most popular home designs. They first started going up in the early 1900s, and construction continued until close to the mid-century mark.

The original bungalows in Chicago came in a one-and-a-half story design. They were long and skinny, and made of brick.
Marketed toward the middle class, they were some of the most moderately priced homes being built in Chicago at the time.
