True Ranch House – Style Trends Houseplan

40s-house-styles-005

The third house in the Style Plans book, the True Ranch House.  This house was designed to be low and open with lots and lots of light.

40s-house-styles-006As you can see from the plans, there is an amazing stone hearth in the living room, which they call a “studio” living room because it is open to the dining room.  A great design feature is the use of glass block.  There is an entire wall of it off of the hearth to separate the dining room and the living room. I would love to see that!  Another large glass block wall is put in the kitchen to let in tons of light.
