The bungalow cottage home was affordable to a class of homebuyers who wanted a home but often couldn't get the money together to buy one. The International Mill & Timber Company offered their homes at 50% down, with two years to pay it off. The Joycewell is the type of small house that offered the dream at a reasonable cost. It may be small at about 700 sq. ft. but had a functional floor plan that would suit many families even today.
