Like its namesake bubblewrap, Bungalow Wrap is intended to protect that which it surrounds, except in this case it is the viewers who are protected from those blots on the landscape known collectively as Bungalow Blight.

It's a simple product which just wraps around the offending bungalow, disguising as just about anything that has been printed on its external surface. This could be a small herd of cows, or a clump of daffodils, or even a pile of logs leaning against a rusting tractor carcass. In fact anything, but the hideous excesses of a typical bungalow, perched in the midst of an otherwise unspoiled landscape.

Those who live in the bungalow will be able to come and go as they please after they have cut lines in the wrap to allow the doors to open. Being semi-translucent means that at least some light will be admitted to the illuminate the predictably chintzy interior decor that previously matched the outside structure.

Bungalow Wrap would attract a grant to encourage its widespread usage.

Now also available in "Tank Destroyed by Nato Plane" finish for those living in rural Libya, or "Bear slaughtered leaving abandoned Cub" signed by Sarah Palin.

       Only a few vantage points would work and that's too bad. Maybe LED panels and eye detection cameras.   

       Absolutely horrific echo, or whatever the word you want to use for 'manhandling a theme'.

       Extensive work has already been done on measures for dealing effectively with both individual bungalows <link> and for those in larger infestations.

       But... if bubble wrap is wrap, covered in bubbles, that us used to cover other things, then surely bungalow wrap is covered in bungalows, and used for covering other things?   

       I am imagining a nice green hill with a few hedges and sheep on it. A low-loader rolls up with a ginormous roll of bungalow wrap on the back. Enormous tractor devices pull the wrap up and over the hill. Now the hill is covered in bungalows. Job done.

       And then:   

       "You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em ....   

       Job DEFINITELY done. And dusted. And burned to a crisp.

       Egads, so this was how the bungalow burka craze started....

       [6th], that is the beauty of the Bungalow Wrap team. Your devastated warzone can, after a half hour with the roll of Bungalow Wrap, be transformed back into a low-density suburban development of bungalows. Nice one!
