The Ranch style is often viewed as being incredibly plain and simple to a fault. These homes were based on the prairie style from Frank Lloyd Wright and have low gables and deep set eaves.
If you are lucky enough to own one of these then you have discovered the functionality of its open floor plan. There are no hidden nooks or wasted space, just a well planned home.
The exteriors are generally made of only one or possibly two natural materials which add to the simplicity of the home.
The most authentic change to make the exterior more appealing are shutters.
The Raised ranch style grew in popularity shortly after the ranch style. This is the taller version of the ranch with two stories and the lower partially submerged.
These also make incredible use of space and have a series of large windows in front.
