Ranch House Plans

Ranch-style homes, also sometimes referred to as Ramblers, feature sprawling dimensions that make these houses ideal for suburban or rural lots. They rose to popularity during the months and years after World War II came to an end. As the housing market heated up to accommodate returning soldiers, this style of house proved ideal for people wanting to settle down and start a family, and who were in the process of comparing house plans for sale. Available in L-shaped, U-shaped, or rectangular architecture, ranch-style homes are modest in appearance, yet offer the height of comfort and affordability.

The floor plan designs for ranch-style homes center on easy access among the main living areas of the house. The living room and dining room typically share a single space while the kitchen, while contained in its own area, sits nearby for easy movement in and out of the living and dining rooms. The bedrooms and the main bathroom in the home are often located down a hallway that extends from the living room. Most ranch-style homes are one level, although many also have basements that can serve as additional living space.

The outside of these homes are modest, yet elegant. They typically feature basic siding or brick exteriors. The tall picture windows are sometimes framed by decorative shutters. The shutters are the only hint of decoration on the outside of the home, in fact. The front porch itself can be a showpiece. The porch may be covered. Likewise, the entrance to the home could be a covered portico. Ranch-style homes remain highly popular today.
