Daily Bungalow - SE Portland, Laurelhurst Neighborhood
Detail of the clinker brick and rafter tails. Gorgeous.
This is one of seven houses built on this block, built before WW1 for a subdivision to be called "Bungalow Fairyland". The Homes were built right before the US entered the war. Business slowed during and for a few years after the war, very few homes were built.
During the twenties the soldiers that had returned from Europe were more interested in English Cottage and Storybook style homes. These bungalows that were influenced by the Japanese at the Chicago World Columbian Exposition in 1893 seemed odd and dated.
