Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
"Bungalows are the archetypal house of 1920s New Zealand. Builders and architects took ideas from the United States, Canada, India and even Japan, and added their own features to create this popular and enduring style. The style is distinctive, with a deep porch, exposed rafter eaves, extended bargeboards and oriel windows. Many bungalows remain largely in their original form, and they are frequently subjects for renovation. Renovate bungalows is a unique technical resource, and looks at what defines a bungalow style, how they were constructed and with what materials and the typical modifications they have had in the years since they were built."--Publisher's description.
