In fact, there aro a great ninny bungalow de­ signs which would entirely lose their charm If not dressed In an exterior finish of brickwork Further than the pleasing appearance which Is obtained when tho house Is Just finished, tho fact that this appearance will remain a permnnent part of the house for nn Indefinitely long time with very little uttentlon being pnld to It, Is nn ns- 8urunco which means a great deal to Its owner.
