More Ranch Style House Plans

Ranch home plans are one-story house plans and typically range from one-story square to rectangular, L shaped, or U shaped designs.

It should be noted that although less expensive to build than other house designs, ranch homes tend to have a larger foundation and roof area which can increase the comparative cost to other home styles.

Ranch homes remain very popular and have a unique history in the U.S. having created affordable housing for many.

Here are a few of our favorite ranch style homes; click on the photo or link for more detailed information.
