Simple and beautiful in design, these one level homes are a perfect fit for anyone looking for an open concept space with all rooms on the same floor. If you are looking to build your next home with a rancher design in mind, trust the experts to craft the home that is perfect for you and your family.

Why Consider a Rancher?

A design dating back to the early 1920s, this classic home design offers a perfect alternative to multi level homes with features that may be troublesome for baby boomers and families with young children. Although earlier ranchers and single level homes were often confined to suburbs and designated neighborhoods, they are now expanding to open lots with more land, making them even more appealing for family life.

One Level Open Floor Plans

The rise of the rancher and one level living seems to be moving in tandem with the rise of the open floor plan, a rising trend in home buying and building. Open floor plans typically consist of a two rooms, a kitchen and a living room combined, as a single living space for entertaining and a streamlined design. These larger rooms have become especially marketable for families with young children, serving as spaces where the entire family can get together in a larger shared room for everyday use or special occasions throughout the year.
