Opening comment[edit]

Suggest title change to California Bungalow, the standard term.

Picture[edit]

Added a picture I took to illustrate the article. It's not perfect so feel free to put something better in. --W.marsh 01:44, 7 August 2005 (UTC)

Comment[edit]

I guess I have to question whether "ultimate bungalow" is a real term in general use in architectural history or commentary. For instance, a Google search on "ultimate bungalow" finds fewer than 700 online uses, including this article, and many uses where it is used to make a zippy title or description, rather than as an identifying term. In contrast, "craftsman bungalow" finds 77,000 online uses. That would be a good title for an article, in which this could be a component, explaining what seems to be essentially a related slang usage. - Kevin Matthews, editor in chief, ArchitectureWeek

redirectify?[edit]

Can we make this a redirect to Bungalow#California Bungalow? This article is essentially a watered-down version of that one, with many of the same images, sources and facts. The main article suggests this is a particular type of bungalow, but this article doesn't come anywhere near close to explaining this. Daniel Case (talk) 17:20, 10 December 2009 (UTC)

The article needs alot of work for sure. However, a California Bungalow is a highly notable and specific architectural style from the 1920s, especially in Australia which would warrant its own article at some stage. I don't know enough about both to sort it out, but might give it a go. Need to think on what goes where..but my first impression is that it'd not be a good move to merge.Casliber (talk · contribs) 19:52, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps it would be best to trim this article of redundancy so that it doesn't step on the toes of the Bungalow article. I'm not in favor of merging. Binksternet (talk) 23:55, 10 December 2009 (UTC)
Keep the article but rework on the article to bring the article to a better state. Bidgee (talk) 01:23, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

After reading both articles and the above comments it seems to me it would be a logical action to merge the articles, but I do agree that the name would need a tweak. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Rbnsbill (talkcontribs) 02:51, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

Californian bungalowCalifornia bungalow – The n at the end is almost never used when referring to this style (at least in California). 70.36.134.93 (talk) 04:09, 9 July 2011 (UTC) Support Having done a quick search, it seems that the US use California bungalow ([1][2][3][4]) while Californian bungalow is mostly used in Australia with the odd use of California bungalow ([5][6][7][8][9]).

  • Support the removal of the 'n', speaking as a Californian. <g> Binksternet (talk) 13:01, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Support: "Californian" is rarely used, "California" functions as an adjective. –CWenger (^@) 18:26, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
    • It looks like the addition of the 'n' was overlooked and came along for the ride with a capitalization change in the previous, successful move request. –CWenger (^@) 18:34, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
      • Sorry, that was my fault. I thought it would be more correct because you wouldn't have an "Australia bungalow" or a "Germany bungalow". Even though "Californian" sounds more correct to me, if common usage suggests otherwise than I have no problem with the move. OSX (talkcontributions) 13:43, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
