Published Oct 3, The Bungalow Belt neighborhoods encircling the city have provided attractive, high-quality, adaptable housing for generations of Chicagoans—and will continue to do so well into the future.
As second generation immigrants moved up the economic ladder, they typically sought to move outside the denser, older neighborhoods where they had grown up. The American Dream of a house with a yard was as strong a lure then as it is now, and the lots sold quickly to families and developers.

That started a trend that would dominate the next three decades of home building in the city. Regardless of aesthetic details, craftsmanship and high-quality construction were universal. Bungalows featured modern conveniences, including central heating, electric light and plumbing.
Floor plans were fairly standard, with open guest spaces and clearly separated private family spaces. Attics and basements could be finished for extra room. Bungalows, like many other aspects of life in the city, lost their luster in the latter half of the 20th century. The squared-off and wooden West Coast structures more closely resemble the originals in Bengal, India.
Bungalows are located in a relatively narrow arc across the city, called the Bungalow Belt, and Masengarb said it curves about four or seven miles from downtown. As for that single bathroom, Masengarb said bungalows had a rather tight floor plan.

If the blueprint divided the house lengthwise, one half would contain the kitchen, dining room and half of the living room while the other would show the living room's other half, two bedrooms and a bathroom in the middle. Many had a porch.
The upstairs attic could be converted to a bedroom or storage space, with many owners adding dormers. Full basements were reserved for the furnace, storage and enough laundry space for clotheslines used in winter. The houses attracted lots of first-generation immigrants who had the means to move out of densely populated ethnic neighborhoods and housing with fewer amenities. Vegetable and flower gardens, often with fruit trees, lined the lawns of the backyards.
Gillian Wiescher, deputy director of the Historic Chicago Bungalow Association, said some common alterations owners make to their bungalows include attic insulation, air sealing, upgrading furnaces, pipe insulation and low-flow shower heads.

But once fixed, she said bungalows could become just as or more efficient than new homes by reusing historic resources. But despite such improvements, Suerth said he and his wife are still interested in bringing the original look back to the Giddings Street bungalow. Previously, Suerth upgraded their bathroom to its original condition.
