How Ranch Style Differs from other Modular Homes

Ranch style modular home is a classic American house plan that help creates a welcoming home. The layout of a ranch house emphasizes accessibility and convenience. Its plan uses a more horizontal design that is perfect for household members with limited mobility or homeowners who like easy maneuverability in their home.

Ranch style modular home, however, is most liked because of its features.

Ranch Style Floor Plans

The classic ranch floor plan is asymmetrical and L-shaped. While the public areas of the home tend to be connected on one side of the home, a hallway will lead to the bedrooms. Dining and living areas tend to be combined, and a ranch home is designed to create an efficient use of space. This sharp boundary between public and private areas in the home helps to define the flow and create an efficient living space.

Floor plans can also be configured into rectangular or U-shaped houses. Often, a homeowner will find an L-shaped ranch floor plan, but decide he or she wants more square footage. It’s a fairly easy process to convert an L-shaped floor plan into a U-shaped one that creates this additional area and can allow you to create a home office next to the master bedroom.

Ranch Style and other One Story Modular Homes

A ranch style house plan means more than just a single story home. Country cottages can be one-story, but may not fit the mold of a traditional ranch style home. A ranch style house plan usually minimizes the presence of a porch, if it has one at all. Ranches are more known for their backyard landscaping and patios for outdoor living space and relaxation. Another difference between a one-story cottage and a ranch style home is the roof. Ranch style house plans usually call for more low pitched roofs (often a hip roof) that accentuate the horizontal design.
