Ranch homes, also known as one-story homes are a very popular home design for many homeowners. Ranch style houses emphasize openness, with few interior walls and an efficient use of space. As a single story home, ranch houses offer many advantages to St. Louis area homeowners. Perfect for those who prefer a spacious layout without have to lug up and down the stairs on a regular basis, this home style remains very popular today. For anyone with mobility issues, the open floorplan of the ranch allows for easy maneuverability.
