Traditional Ranch Homes I appreciate most of the smaller ranch style homes from my youth. Good for the present day, smaller, more efficient heating/cooling, etc Footprint is typically smaller and work well for newly weds, and retirees. Most of you won't recognize a term called a "1040". It was a 3br/1bath home in 1040 SF and very popular after World War II and the Korean War. Bring them back!
Ranch with Natural Light A new, front-facing gable on this 1950s ranch, which includes clerestory windows to fill the living room with sunlight, fits into the design scheme beautifully. Old and new wood siding and brick are tied together with a coat of taupe paint. Window details convey a traditional cottage theme with sashes housing multiple panes of glass.
