Americans believed that technological advances helped win the Second World War and launch was was to become known as the Space Age. Innovative designs such as the all electric home were supposed to make housework a thing of the past.

Synthesized versions of Frank Lloyd Wright's Prairie style ranch house floor plan became very popular in more well to do areas.
How much outdoor is good _ every home floor plan will include an outdoor area, perhaps an open porch, a swimming pool, a garden umbrella with seating etc. Making an assessment of how much time will be spent in these areas should be considered before making the plans.

You made your decision; you are finally going to build that log home. Not just any log home, but that special creation you've held in your mind's eye for so many years.
