One of the most common housing styles today is the single floor ranch house, with three bedrooms and two baths. Landscape attributes may vary, but these type of floor plans can be adjusted to meet most lot requirements.
Look at the floor plans for a typical ranch house and typically they include a basement as well as an attached garage. Convenience is the key to most ranch house floor plans and the garage, with an entry to the kitchen area, provides easy access to the most common rooms in the house.
Many floor plans allow for entry to the bathroom off the kitchen with most having a second door leading to a hallway, allowing entry from the living room and bedrooms as well. This creates a circular flow through the bathroom that will also aid in ventilation.
From the kitchen, access to the living room is also available, usually leading to a hallway, which leads to three bedrooms. As with most ranch house floor plans, the master bedroom is on one side of the hall way and two other bedrooms are on the front of the house. Keeping the master bedroom separate and facing the opposite side of the structure provides additional privacy.
The basement may contain the laundry room and large usable room for storage and perhaps even a family or recreation room. By turning the family room sideways to the house on the floor plans, you can create a room large enough to accommodate game tables, a dining area for snacks as well as a second television set. On a sloped lot this area can also utilize patio doors leading to an outside living area and possibly even a fireplace for winter entertaining.
While ranch house floor plans may seem like some of the simplest plans available, they offer ease and superior functionality in use.
