We just bought a house that I call ranch style but my husband, the historical preservationist calls post-war bungalow. It was built around 1946. The kitchen has already been remoldeled but we are thinking of trying to make it more "of the period." I've looked up magazines like _American Home_ and _Better Homes & Gardens_ but was wondering if there was a good book about this particular period. Most books stop around 1930. We want to redo the outside which was done in vinyl siding so are interested in exteriors as well as interiors.
