Prevailing loan programs of the day made getting a home loan with no money down easier than it ever had been in previous years. Soldiers returning from World War II wanted to settle down and begin raising families. With the demand for homes at an all time high, the simple form and lack of detail made the ranch house floor plan much faster to build than a stately Tudor style home. Formal foyers and spiral staircases were discarded and replaced by level entries and single story plans.
Country style floor plans represent the quintessential farmhouses that we have so often seen in the movies. Country homes are planned in such a way as to feel comfortable. The floor plan of a country home delivers a rustic and relaxing atmosphere _ it doesn't matter where it is built. They are characterized by roomy porches and large kitchens which are situated right next to the family room. Some country houses have steep roofs and irregular layouts. Still others have a front face that is not symmetrical, a pitched roof and a spacious front porch.
