Introducing the Chicago Bungalow Association's Bungalow Expansion Project

The Bungalow Expansion Project was created in response to our many members who stood along side us with our popular #StopThePop Campaign, yet still needed guidance on how to add space instead of popping the top. Learn more about the #StopThePop Campaign and the Bungalow Expansion Project, and find the free digital download version at www.chicagobungalow.org/expanding-your-space

Living in a Chicago Bungalow, you've most likely come to value thoughtful design over sheer square footage. That said, you may be looking for options to expand your bungalow living for your family. Our goal is to provide you with a collection of sensible design solutions that provide the desired added space while protecting the value of your home and streetscape by avoiding "popping" the top—all at or below the cost of a pop top addition.

​Like a puzzle, use pieces of these design schemes to explore the various paths that can be taken to expand your bungalow living, both inside and outside of its original footprint. The Bungalow Expansion Project design schemes were created in partnership with AIA Chicago residential architects and can be applied as an approach to your Chicago Bungalow.

This book version of the Bungalow Expansion Project includes easy to navigate architectural plans, digital renderings and approximate cost breakdowns for the following design schemes:

Scheme № 1: System Upgrades Design
Scheme № 2: Finished Basement Design
Scheme № 3: Rear Addition Design
Scheme № 4: Second Floor Dormers Design
Scheme № 5: Second Floor Addition Design A
Scheme № 6: Second Floor Addition Design B

These coasters are fantastic! Beautiful, high quality photos of Chicago's historic bungalows.. Great addition to my growing coaster collection! Shipping was great, packaging was even better. As an added bonus, the shipper included a few complementary 'Thank You' cards for my use... So nice! 5 STARS!

Great quality, I will enjoy it hanging on my office door throughout this year. Hope you make one again next year with more views of the exteriors of Chicago's iconic bungalows.
