This somewhat ornate cottage bungalow with its exaggerated barge boards and knee brackets, was designed for "the average family of three or four ... The ornamental features of the trim, painted white in vivid contrast to the brown stains of the sides, make the home look very attractive." It makes a great argument for NOT painting your bungalow if your stained siding has remained intact.
