Bungalows are popular and attractive, but many do not care for the extreme features of the true bungalow. We have, therefore, tried to combine the bungalow appearance with that of a comfortable cottage, and the result as shown in this plan is certainly pleasing. We might call it a semi-bungalow. It has the broad low lines and the wide eaves, yet the siding, porch trim, and general exterior appearance are typical of the comfortable cottage. On the interior we depart from the bungalow by having two bedrooms on the second floor.
Using testimonials I was able to locate three examples of the Gordon Van Tine 156

Come back for my next blog to see more from Gordon Van Tine! And no, I don’t just identify Gordon Van Tine…I’m just polishing my GVT identification skills and knowledge right now. I’ll be honest. I do love Gordon Van Tine though!
