The Ranch style home is by far the most popular home and the most adaptable home built today. The Ranch style home can be designed as large or as small as needed. Typically the home is built in two modules but one can easily add more modules to change the exterior look or to increase the square footage of the home. The Prow is an alternative Ranch style which is great for narrow lots, presents an attractive outside appearance and offers a panoramic view from the inside.

The living room is typically open to the roof on the glassed-in end for a spacious, open feeling. Popular options for this home are cedar siding, fireplaces, and custom windows or doors.
