Airplane Bungalow style dates from the early 20th century and grew out of the Arts and Crafts Movement. The Airplane Bungalow is similar to the Craftsman Bungalow, but the Airplane Bungalow is characterized by a “pop up” second floor, usually of one or two rooms; resembling a cockpit of an airplane. It may also refer to single story bungalows with low pitched roofs, wide sweeping open soffits that have dormers pointing out of the front of the roof resembling the cockpit of an airplane. The style is more popularly seen along the west coast of the United States and Southwestern and Western Canada.

The Airplane Bungalow is typically found with American Craftsman or Prairie Style elements.[1] Both have a low-pitched, gabled roof, oversized eaves with exposed rafters, and bands of windows.
