The bungalow / single storey: The simple, practical, and affordable housing solution!
Everyone is familiar with the bungalow: a cozy one-story house, with a large finished basement, on a beautiful lot in the suburbs. If you dream of suburban living without the hassle and bustle of the big city, without being too far from it, the bungalow is a choice for you to consider.
A little history: The bungalow in Quebec
It was in the 1950s that Quebec saw its first bungalows, also called single-storey houses. Back then, bungalows met the needs of families looking for a house in a quiet area where they could live peacefully yet still be close to the city where they were employed. Their popularity grew steadily, and it was in the 1960s and 1970s that they were most sought after.
The bungalow is first and foremost a practical house: all the main rooms (bedrooms, kitchen, living room, bathroom) are on the same floor. Everything is therefore easily and quickly accessible without stairs. Bungalows are very easy to adapt for wheelchair use and are also convenient older people. For a young family, having all the bedrooms on the same floor brings peace of mind since parents can be close to their children!
The bungalow allows you to live peacefully not too far from the city. Your neighbor’s house is not attached to yours from above, to the left or to the right! You own a lot that includes a yard where children can play, where adults can relax and where everyone can swim during the warmer months if you decide to add a pool!
A bungalow is also much more affordable than a two-story house and therefore allows you to settle in the suburbs at a more reasonable price.
And finally, the bungalow comes with a large fully finished and usable basement. Whether it's for storage or for adding a family room when the kids grow up and need more space indoors!
