Modular Home Ranch Floor Plans

The first modular homes were ranch homes. The American ranch home originated in California as large single floor living spaces. After World War II ranch homes became very popular with growing families who required more living space than the two bedroom bungle homes built directly after the war.

There are a number of different types of ranch homes: typical straight ranch; raised ranch; split level ranch; T-ranch and L-Ranches.

Straight Ranch Floor Plans - The straight ranch offers single floor living space. The bedrooms in these floor plans can be grouped together on ones side of the home or the bedrooms can be divided by the living space. The straight ranch is the most popular due to functionality of single floor living space with a large foundation space. The modular homes were typically ranch floor plans.

Raised Ranch floor plans are very close to straight ranch homes. The major difference between a straight ranch and raised ranch is the split stair case found in raised ranches. In addition the ranch is raised out of the ground extending to the "raised" in its name. In the infancy of the modular home industry, straight and raised ranches were the only two types of modular homes floor plans available for home buyers.

The demand for homes with dimension lead the modular home industry to offer T-ranches and split levels. These two floor plans types are very similar. T-Ranches and split level modular homes cost more than a straight ranch due to additional foundation corners and roofing construction. Most T-Ranches can be built as split levels and vice versra. The split level at on one time the most desired floor plan in the United States, the popularity of split levels and raised ranches have waned recently where as T-Ranch and Straight Ranch floor plans have gained more popularity.

Ranch Homes - Plain and Casual

The original ranch homes were value designed homes with little to no adornment. The simplicity of the homes allowed people to invest in the infamous recreation rooms of the seventies. In fact todays modular ranch homes are similar to their original counter parts. Modular ranch homes are delivered with shutters and no other decorative elements as a standard. The stark appeal of a ranch home allows people today to invest in media rooms and home offices in their basements.

Modular Ranch Homes

The modest ranch is reclaiming its popularity. In the late 40s ranch homes were the most popular home to build. They came in a variety of styles: straight simple ranch homes, raised ranched, luxurious split levels

 

Ranch Home Affordability

Ranch homes are affordable due to their simple design. Often ranch home did not have a porch or any other exterior finishes other than siding and trim. Many of the baby boomers who are retiring are moving back into ranches for the convenience of single floor living. Ranch homes offer growing families a full basement for bedrooms or recreation rooms for children. Today ranch homes offer a bit more style with porches and brick facades and reverse gables. Ranch homes are economical and practical.
