George Krauth has always loved bungalows. So when he, by chance, drove by this 1920s bungalow in Chattanooga, Tennessee’s St. Elmo neighborhood, “I stopped, called, and pretty much made an offer on the spot,” says George.
The style’s hand-crafted solidity with its signature low-horizontal shape and combination of bricks and timbers reflects George’s love of the outdoors, but memories have something to do with it too. His great-grandfather owned a bungalow in Winchester, Tennessee, and George fondly remembers childhood visits to the family home. He’s filled his own home with family furniture and one-of-a-kind attic finds. He admits that his family members often say, “Oh, give that to George―he’ll know what to do with it.” We agree: He does.
