Ladies Home Journal was instrumental as one of the major propagandists in the bungalow mania of the early 20th century. Issues from 1905 to 1920 (more or less) had many articles on bungalows and small house living. I think we'd do well to return to the smaller footprint and ditch the excess crap. Who wouldn't want to live in this house? Cute!
