New construction ranch style home mini tour

Different Ranch models of new construction


I spend a lot of my time working and showing builder model homes and I have seen a lot of recent interest in small ranch homes.  A ranch is a single story above ground home with a basement below ground with one or more bedrooms above ground.   Most of these builders base their pricing with an unfinished basement which is generally 100% of the size of the main floor so a ranch style home will usually have a very large basement when compared to other styles.  The 3 different builders and floorplans I will discuss are all at $220-250,000 without a finished basement.

It is quite common to get a request to build these as handicap accessible and all of the builders can modify these plans to accommodate.   Generally all will have plumbing roughed in for a bathroom in the basement and there is lots of room to expand below.
