I'm always fascinated by the different types of bungalows we have here in Houston. This collection is based on the materials each is made from.
A beautiful stucco bungalow with curved porch archways located in Woodland Heights.

A sensational all wood bungalow in Houston Heights historical district.

A lovely all wood bungalow with brick and slab entry porch.

Another of this same type with an inviting front porch. I love this paint color combination, don't you?
Located in Houston Heights historical district.

A cozy all brick bungalow with beautiful landscaping.

A rare stone bungalow with a new tin roof. These stones look like they are from East Texas.

A limestone bungalow with new tin roof.

Here's another shot. I really like this look. Found here in Oak Forest.

A refurbished bungalow with natural style hardy board siding.
This is beautifully done and one of my favorite of the new styles of bungalows using hardy board.

Finally, another refurbished bungalow with hardy board and natural stone facade.
I'm so glad to see these bungalows refurbished rather than torn down.

This one was behind my bungalow here in Oak Forest. They are replaced by giant McMansions that look like monsters on our small lots.

Here's one going up along side our neighborhood bungalows. Why do people need such large houses?
Maybe if you were the Walton's and had 10 kids you might convince me that they are needed.
Maybe there's an indoor basketball court hidden under that roof. 
Oh well, I guess the deer said they same thing when our little bungalows replaced their wild forest lands.
Wonder what will replace the McMansions a century from now?
Maybe the land will revert back to forests as we move into high rises.
Maybe I'll see a deer pass by.
