March 12, 2009True Ranch House – Style Trends Houseplan
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.
As 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.
