Hello, my lovely readers. I hope you had a great weekend! I spent part of the weekend looking at some really great custom home builder designs. More beautiful looks just kept coming up for me, so I decided to do a post about a few of them. Let’s get right into it!
A classic American home style, ranch style homes (or ramblers!) are wide and generally one-story. A combination of Western style and modernist ideas, the architectural trend started in the 1960s. (Thanks, Wikipedia!)
What do we think of when we think of the ranch? Cowboys huddled around a fire, singing folk songs. The open range with cattle grazing. It’s a part of the American psyche, fused into our very DNA through movies, music, and more. Just try to sing “Home On The Range” without thinking of these things!
To bring this romantic idea into custom home design is, to me, a great idea.
Let’s take a look at 5 ranch style homes!
High society. Corsets. Stringent moral standards. And most importantly, the Victorian house! I’ve been looking for the most beautiful Victorian house plans, and I found 7 that I want to share.
Actually, what we Americans call a Victorian isn’t necessarily the “real thing.” Architects here definitely have taken inspiration from the homes built in 19th century England, but we have made a few changes to the basic design. Luckily, the introduction of basic sanitation features like hot and cold water, proper drainage, and indoor toilets have stuck around.
I love to look in-depth at a certain kind of home design. For this installment, I’m taking a look at the 5 most gorgeous log cabins I’ve ever seen!
