Humble Bungalow dining room east view.
Window dressing and bench seat cushions.
You can read about these in the previous post.
South wall and buffet.
West wall with bungalow built ins, a classic feature in the arts and crafts home.
Shelves, glass fronted cupboards, and an angled bevelled mirror
are details of our 1913 heritage bungalow dining room.
The Bungalow has dark douglas fir panelling and is quite a small home, hence my decision to name it The Humble Bungalow.
A working man and family would have been installed here eeking out a living and perhaps tending a vegetable garden in the yard.
It is 2010, and the Bungalow stands, a testament to a bygone era of simplicity and honest living and the garden is very fertile and plantings thrive.
We have attempted to improve and update the Bungalow maintaining the architectural integrity and restoring her to a functioning family home.
We are bucking the tide in many ways...
most people that we know have large homes with room to sprawl and great rooms for entertaining.
I suppose this might be our retirement home...downsized before need be!
