The availability and increasing popularity of the automobile also defined the heyday of the ranch house floor plan. For the first time, the garage was moved to the front of the home. This was the first generation of home owners to have a highly prized freedom and mobility to work and shop in the city and then retreat to the suburbs to live. Because the suburbs removed the need to build houses close together, lots became increasingly larger and the square footage of the average house floor plan expanded accordingly. Ranch house floor plans generally accentuated the width of the lot.
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.
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.
Technical difference _ In 2D floor plans, you, the designer, work on both y axis and x axis. Moreover, the design can be changed in up, down, right and left sides. On the other hand, 2D plans are a lot simpler and cheaper relatively. They can be used to show the right, top and front side of the object. Unlike 2D, designers work on three exis to create 3D floor plans. Actually, this is like molding an object that looks same no matter which angle you look at it from. With 3D technology, solid models and wireframes are created line by line.
