Sites like Stanley Furniture are great to find furniture for every room including the living room, dining room and bedroom as well as case goods and accents. It gives their exact dimensions and where the furnishings can be purchased locally. Have fun making several plan options if possible. Try the basic sofa and loveseat on one plan and try a sectional or a sofa with chairs on another. Get creative by breaking up larger rooms into a couple of sitting areas. See if the dream of a chaise can become a reality on plan for the bedroom. Extra homework is important before heading out to shop for decor.
The façade is brick or wooden, with large windows. Ranch homes typically have an L_shaped hall which combines the living room and dining room into one area, with a hallway leading to the family room and a group of bedrooms all on one side of the house. A patio at the back with a glass sliding door leading to it is not unusual for a ranch house.
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.
A floor plan is about space deployment, or more specifically, the space you want (or need) for family members, guests, pets, entertaining and basic household operations (i.e. cooking, dining, laundry, storage, etc.). Furthermore, it is easy to overlook space requirements for many things we take for granted such as hobbies, displaying collections and other family activities. Try to anticipate as many of your family's needs as possible and expand your floor plan to accommodate your desires.
