230 South Bull Street
Bungalow House Form
Prized for its sensible floor plans and affordability, the bungalow was a popular house form among median income families during the early twentieth-century. This structure, for instance, was home to Irvin Chappel, a division manager for South Carolina Energy & Gas during the 1930s, and Jacob Shealy a manager of Dixie Home Store's bakery during the 1950s. Though variations exist, bungalows generally stand one to one-and-a-half stores tall and are defined by horizontal lines and a low-pitched roof. Details such as exposed rafter tails and front or L-shaped porches are also common.
