Style Trends Book – Wide-Lot Ranch

40s-house-styles-00740s-house-styles-008Another great 1940’s  houseplan from the Style Trends Book. The element that really sets this ranch apart are the large windows on both sides of the living room. I love our “wall of glass” windows in our living room, but I can’t imagine having them on both sides. How would that work out?  Ours is facing our back yard, but we have several houses on our street that have a large window in the front yard.  Some of them have solved the privacy issue by planting trees or hedges to seperate them from the road, and others have actually frosted the glass of the front window.  That makes me sad, since it would be a shame to lose the great view, but I wouldn’t want every person who drives down the street to see me watching television!
