The Modern Ranch was designed with family and a neighborhood setting in mind. It has three large bedrooms, two baths and a large communal space which includes the kitchen, dining room and living room. The exterior maintains some classic features such as a single story, low pitched roof, long proportions and clap board siding but also includes some modern upgrades such as large sliding glass doors, sliding window shade screens and a sleek metal roof. The interior also embraces a clean modern look. Storage is everywhere including large closets in all three bedrooms, storage in the main hallway and a large laundry room. The communal spaces in this house are kept separate from the private spaces. The open floor plan of the Kitchen, Dining area and Living room is an inviting space that welcomes you as soon as you enter the house. Large glass sliders in the common area extend this communal space to the outdoors for summer BBQ’s and backyard play. The exterior of the Modern Ranch is sided with fiber cement clap board and panel siding. Because the bedrooms and baths face the street there are fewer windows for more privacy. The rear of the house offers large sliding doors and casement windows that open up to the back yard. To reduce the amount of solar exposure in the hot summer months we have designed window shading devices over all of the glass. A sleek metal roof is a durable green feature and optional solar panels can provide energy for the home. The Kitchen features clean lines and soft tones. The polished concrete floor is durable and works well with many interior styles. The vaulted ceiling is clad with ply panels with a finished grade wood veneer to match the veneer on the cabinets. The Living room features modern décor and comfort. Polished concrete floors are cool in both senses of the word but they can be made warm by installing radiant heat in the slab. Beyond keeping your home and the bottom of your feet warm, a radiant heated slab is so inviting the floor itself becomes an extension of the living room’s furnishings as a useful working surface for sleeping, playing and or relaxing. Gas or electric fireplaces are great for esthetic appeal, resale value and ambiance.
