About Ranch House Plans & Ranch Home Floor Plans...
Ranch house plans are designed for one level living and are one of today’s most popular home choices. They are often designed with an asymmetrical footprint and feature an open floor plan. Ranch homes have no specific exterior features other than they are noticeably built with one level. Architectural style and size is quite diverse with one-story houses ranging from a simple starter home to stunning European home design with all the extras. Various rooflines and basic or elegantly detailed façades deliver a plethora of designs ensuring no two ranch house plans are exactly the same. Typical floor plans include an attached garage, combined living and dining areas, large picture windows, and rear doors that open to an outdoor living space such as a deck. Ranch house plans can be found in many home plan collections including Country house plans, Mountain home plans, and Traditional designs.
Ranch home designs are popular because they work well for homeowners in all phases of life including singles and young couples starting out, growing families, empty-nesters and retirees. Additionally, one-story homes are safe for children and are accessible to people of all abilities due to their lack of stairs. For budget conscious buyers, ranch floor plans are appealing because they make efficient use of space. Since ranch house plans range for simple cottages to Premier Luxury floor plans, they can deliver everything from the basic necessities to sophisticated amenities and cutting-edge features. There are many different versions of one-story homes that appeal to homeowners for various reasons. Split-bedroom floor plans situate the master bedroom on one side of the home opposite the children’s rooms. With the gathering areas separating the bedrooms, the master bedroom delights in privacy. On the other hand, bedroom-together designs cluster all of the bedrooms on one side of the home and the living areas on the other. This allows Mom and Dad to be near their little ones all through the night. Raised ranch homes, commonly referred to as split-level houses, make efficient use of space on a narrow lot by stacking levels of living space. Finally, ranch house plans built on a finished walkout basement can nearly double the amount of the home’s living space without the need for a larger lot. Additionally, the walkout basement makes ranch homes suitable for hilly or sloping lots. Sometimes a wall of windows serves as a backdrop to the stairs leading to the finished lower level creating an atrium ranch plan. These floor plans work well on lots such as golf courses and lakes that boast stunning rear views. No matter what type of home plan you are looking for, one thing is certain, ranch house plans offer the ideal living solution for people of all lifestyles throughout the United States and Canada.
