As with any home style, regional variations of ranch homes exist. Ranch homes in the Southwest are more open and spacious while those built in the Northeast are more compact to provide heating and cooling efficiency as well as space conservation. Ranch homes in the Midwest often have basements that at some point likely became finished basements. Regardless of where you go, you are likely to find complete subdivisions of ranch style homes in suburban USA.
Ranch style homes may not get the attention that Victorian homes receive and they lack the passionate fans that Arts & Crafts homes enjoy but like me, ranch style homes have aged gracefully and are now an American classic.
