Building a Better Bungalow

A bungalow gets new landscaping, windows, paint and a lovely pickety fence.

As transplants from urban Chicago, Jennifer and Duncan Wilk would like to create a home that reflects their new suburban lifestyle as they prepare for a family. They would like to polish the classic look of their 1900s raised bungalow home while adding new architectural detail and traditional suburban elements such as a white picket fence.
