Popular in the 1950’s, Ranch house plans, were designed and built during the post-war exuberance of cheap land and sprawling suburbs. During the 1970’s, as incomes, family size and an increased interest in leisure activities rose, the single story home fell out of favor; however, as most cycles go, the Ranch house design is on the rise once again. Affordable, efficient and offering functional layouts, today’s modern single story homes feature a host of amenities that are compatible with today’s families and their lifestyles.
Can you imagine your builder offering to pay your energy bills for the first year? You dont feel pretty confident that you are getting an energy-efficient home! That’s the promise that designer Dave Jenkins’ builder clients can make when they build homes from one of his house plans. Electricity bills can be as little as $600 a year. “Homeowners think the bill is probably triple that, so it’s quite a value,” says Jenkins, who designs Energy Smart Home Plans. But how? And what kinds of features should you look for in an energy-saving house plan?
With its impressive exterior and lavish conveniences, this hillside plan captures the essence of grand living, blending style and grace. This home offers multiple outdoor living areas, including a screened porch with a fireplace and downstairs patios. Inside, special details include decorative ceilings, a circular staircase, and columns. Dont miss the super-luxurious master suite with its bow window, deluxe tub, and large shower, or the downstairs suite that would make an ideal home for an in-law or nanny.
A gray exterior delivers a modern touch to this farmhouse design (plan 1067-4 ). Inside, an open layout flows between the large island kitchen, the great room, and relaxed dining room for easy access when entertaining family and friends. Two sets of French doors open from the living room to the rear porch (which features an optional outdoor kitchen) allowing natural light to shine through.
