Colonial floor plans are elegant without being ostentatious. Moreover, they have an element of history attached to them. These floor plans come from the early American settlements of the East Coast. Colonial architecture ranged from New England to Georgia and, therefore, there are regional variations in style.
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.
