Bungalows and Cottages

Updated May 18, 2022

A bungalow is a one or one-and-a-half story home, typically with a front porch and often, though not always, relatively small and intimate. “Cottage” as an architectural style (rather than as functional description, such as vacation cottage) describes small homes, informal and descended from modest farm houses and other rural dwellings.

    • “The composite-shingled side-gable roof engages a front porch with square wood columns and an original or early railing with square balusters. The railing continues all the way across the front with a gate in line with the front entry, perhaps a feature to keep playing toddlers from wandering off the porch. The porch has a granite foundation (as does the rest of the house) and early or original lattice underpinning.
    • “The window sashes appear to be replacements, although they may replicate the original sash arrangements.
    • “Other features include sidelights around the front entry, an interior brick chimney, and a side shed addition with novelty weatherboard siding and a brick foundation.”

  • District NRHP nomination: The Cooleemee Cotton Mill built 12 distinct types of houses from 1898 to 1953, when the company sold them. 134 Joyner is called a Type C:
    • House Type C — L-Plan (1898-ca. 1911): a one-story, three-bay wide, mill house with front and side-gable roofs, and a one- or two-room rear gable-roofed ell. The house’s main block has an L- plan with front-, side and rear-gable roof ridges joining at the same height at the center interior double-flu brick chimney.
    • “Originally the house had plain weatherboard, six-over-six or four-over-four sash windows, brick foundation piers, and rear kitchen ell brick flue. Gable ends feature distinctive arched, louvered attic vents and scalloped or flared bargeboards.
    • “The three-quarter engaged front porch has a shed-roof with hip-corner, four-inch square wood posts, plain wooden railing, two-inch square pickets, tongue-and-groove pine board flooring, and bead-board ceiling.
    • “Front rooms are accessed from the front porch by an off-center exterior door. Original front doors are wood doors dating after 1953 but during the period of significance are two-to-three panels with a six-to-nine-pane window above.
    • Rear porches were enclosed in 1930 to accommodate bathrooms when the mill company built the central water and sewer system replacing individual privies.”
    • Specifics of 134 Joyner: “Porch screened-in. The windows are replacements. The porch is shaded by an attached metal awning. Aluminum siding, concrete block underpinning and rear shed roof addition added. Rear porch with concrete slab floor, concrete block foundation, metal posts and railing and metal awning”
    • About 150 houses in the mill villages are this type. There are 443 buildings in the district, including homes, industrial and service buildings.
