Ranch style house plans are a great movement of architecture. Although a ranch home is not the first that comes across people’s mind when talking about home plans, the plans still exist to this day. This style has been around for almost a century, while being first introduced around the 1920s. Looking at how long has this style gone through, we need to appreciate it. People usually associate the ranch style with tract housing that was popular during the 1950s. The World War II was still happening that decade and veterans used to build ranch homes to stay with their wives and children.
The reason why people preferred these homes was because it took a short time to build and only needed a small area. The main characteristic of this style are simple and small. Another hallmark is an asymmetrical floor plan. There are two popular types, which are L-shaped as the most favorite and the followed by U-shaped floor plans. Also, if you want to build a home based on a ranch style house plan, it should be one story. Meanwhile, the roofline can either be inspired by the hipped or low gable style. Build large windows because they accentuate the originality of this design. Early homes used to have large windows. Although they look less suitable for a small home, that’s how you emulate the style in detail.
Steel casements were also popular during this period, so you can use them as well. As for the garage, do not build a separate housing. Build it next to the main building. That’s how people in the early days built a garage for their homes. Being small doesn’t make ranch homes feel small because they embrace an open concept design. Floor plans are commonly left open, so each room is connected to each other, creating a really ample space. Another important point of this style is the building of multifunctional rooms.
