The ranch house floor plan is a shining example of the American Dream in its purest form. It was then, and remains today, the most widely built housing style ever seen in America. This house plan style had its heyday from 1949 to 1965 for several reasons.
Once the floor plans are completes extra pre_shopping preparation for the decor can be taken by perusing through favorite magazines and websites relaxing on a break or before drifting off to sleep. By browsing through magazines and online one will gather great decor inspiration. Rip out pages and print out favorite photos of dream rooms to place in a folder to make a dream file.
Now it is time to play with placing furnishings in the floor plan. When the basic room plan is completed make a few copies and have fun designing the room for several scenarios as if playing with furniture in a dollhouse. Just as room was scaled to fit the floor plan the furniture must be placed in the room to scale as well.
A house is built with hands, but a home is built with hearts _ so the old saying goes. However, too much choice in the form of floor plans can be confusing sometimes. Therefore, an understanding of the different styles and how they suit the individual's needs and tastes is an essential step in the process of building a home.
