Ranch Home Floor Plans

Modular ranches come in a number of different styles which include: raised ranch, “T” ranches, split level and “H” ranches. Standard prefab ranch plans start at a small 700 sq feet and can be as larger than 4000 square feet.

Two Story Floor Plans


Modular Two Story Homes -Small building lots are a great place to build your two story modular home. Two stories traditionally have the living room, dining room and kitchen on the first floor. Bedrooms are on the second floor. Modern two story plans have a great room and a master suite on the first floor. Two stories are often called colonials, but they also are available as contemporary of modern floor plans.

Cape Cod Floor Plans


Modular Home Cape Cod Homes - Cape Cods or one and half story homes provide living space in the “attic” area when the second floor is finished off. These floor plans are popular throughout the United States due to the efficiency of the plans and the charm offered by the steep roof pitch. Any ranch home can be turned into a one and a half story home by ordering the home with either a 12/12 or 9/12 roof pitch for habitable ceiling heights on the second floor. Some modular homes come with a finished second floor, others require the second floor to be finished on site.

Modular Home Floor Plans and Considerations for Occupants

Selecting a floor plan for you new home can be a major undertaking. Most people start looking at the exterior of homes hoping the floor plan will have the same appeal as the exterior of the home. This is where floor plan selection can become frustrating. The home looks great from the outside, but the home doesn't have a functional layout for your family. The elements influencing your floor plan selection include: family size; building lot; life style requirements; potential to add on to the home in the future. In addition to these basic elements come personal requirements such as home offices, play rooms; media rooms and storage. Selecting a modular home floor plan should be the second step before looking at the exterior of homes.
