The latest newsletter from Twin Cities Bungalow Club included a feature by Erin Hynes about bungalow organizations across the country. I had a half-finished posting drafted on this topic already, so with some additions taken from Erin’s article, here is my latest contribution to the Bungalow Resources page on the blog. I like getting ideas from other bungalow communities; here’s the links for you to enjoy, too.

Twin Cities Bungalow Club is the local bungalow/old-house enthusiast group.

The Historic Chicago Bungalow Initiative exists “to preserve the Historic Chicago Bungalow and to assist homeowner’s, through education and resources, in adapting the bungalow to meet their current needs.” Useful forum and guides.
