One of the best tips about using a basement for additional living space is to raise the ceiling. Adding an extra foot (or more) in the height of your basement ceiling is much less expensive than adding an additional floor or expanding the overall floor plan, and the added height will eliminate that closed_in feeling you get with so many basements.
The ranch floor plan is conventional and matter_of_fact. The roofs are low pitched with a large garage attached to the house. Ranch homes are single_storied. Split_level floor plans are not unusual.
