Before & After ~ A 1915 Craftsman style Bungalow in Pasadena, California.

Patricia Jennifer spent two years restoring this wonderful 950-square-foot Craftsman style Bungalow in the Bungalow Heaven neighborhood of Pasadena, CA. It is an excellent example of what can be done to save a house that outwardly appears to be a “tear down.”

The Craftsman (or Arts & Crafts) style appears in multiple forms, but its quintessential form is the Bungalow. The word comes from India by way of Great Britain. The Bungalow evolved into its own American form, with variations, and spread from coast to coast in the first decades of the 20th century as the more straightforward detailing and forms of the Craftsman style replaced more elaborate Victorian styles in popularity.

The Bungalow Heaven neighborhood has over 800 small craftsman homes built between 1900 and 1930.

All aspects of home restoration for houses dating from c. 1720 to c. 1970 are covered in “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”

Signed and personalized copies of the award-winning and bestselling 720-page hardcover book are available from the author in our online shop, YourHistoricHouse.com/shop/.
