What Makes a Ranch Style House?

True to their origins of housing a farming family on the open range, ranch style houses are a family-first design. Most typically you'll find them as single-story layouts, though two stories are indeed quite popular as well. From the early 20th century introduction to the mid-century boom of ranch houses, they've been defining Americana for generations. They will likely continue to do so – with good reason.

Low-pitched roofs still offer room for higher, vaulted ceilings. Most have an asymmetrical rectangular floor plan, large windows, separated living areas and bedrooms, and often an attached garage. These are not, however, absolute requirements; one of the trademarks of ranch style homes is their flexibility and adaptability in architecture.
