Becoming prominent after World War II, Ranch style homes were built when there was no longer a need to conserve land, as it was more accessible to homeowners. With a sprawling, horizontal layout our ranch home plans provide efficient use of land. Open concept living spaces encourage time with family and friends.
These gathering spaces are often located in a separate wing from private spaces, such as bedrooms. The separation of rooms brings an element of simplicity to the design of ranch style homes. Typically built with a single story, some of these house plans may include a basement or an upper-level bonus room. Originally designed to be mid-century modern in style, Ranch homes now vary greatly in design and architectural style.
