While some of us wasted the anthropause binge-watching period dramas on TV, some of our neighbors were busy winning prizes and making the rest of us look as lazy as we actually are.
The annual Chicago Bungalow Awards are out, honoring people who demonstrate their love of one of Chicago’s favorite architecture styles in physical ways.
If you’re new to Chicago, a “bungalow” is like a regular low, only with more bunga.
This year there was a new category: The COVID Creativity Awards.
Among the winners are Alex Dunham and Jennifer Bakija, who built a tiki lounge in their basement all by themselves.
Also making the grade are Chris Gordan and Carolina Gomez who turned their detached garage into a social hub with design concessions for the Era of COVID.
The Bungalow Awards are presented by the Chicago Bungalow Association, naturally. You can see all of the winners by following this link.
