Design is critical when money is tight and spaces are small. The history of California housing, starting with the Victorian era’s small upright redwood boxes, yields lessons for habitable and affordable housing today. Bungalow builders responded to population growth with pattern-book housing in streetcar suburbs linked to job centers. Automobiles allowed the ranch house to spread across suburban landscapes. With increasing land cost, designers put more housing on less land. California brought space-saving designs and the integration of interior and outdoor spaces to America with lessons for sheltering people of all income levels.
