Ranch-style homes are perfect for families that want it all: convenience, privacy, and space. At Adair Homes, we feature 29 ranch-style custom home floor plans, and 14 of these are homes of more than 2,000 square feet. See all single-story plans.

Key Elements of Ranch-Style Homes

Ranch-style home plans vary, but there are some common characteristics you can expect to see, such as:

  • Single-level living
  • An open concept floor plan
  • An attached garage
  • A low-pitched roofline, often with wide eaves

Optional features that are often included in open-floor plan ranch-style homes include:

  • Patio or deck space with sliding glass doors
  • Large windows to allow connection with the outdoors
  • A small covered entry

Cost Factors for Ranch-Style Houses 

Budget is always a primary concern when planning your custom home. The top 5 factors that drive price include the following:

  • Foundation costs
  • Overall roof dimensions
  • Exterior finishes
  • Interior upgrades
  • Land prices

Considering the cost drivers and the fact that a ranch home will require a larger parcel of land and more linear feet of roofing and foundation, it's not surprising that a one-level home often has a higher cost per square foot. It can cost as much as 4% to 10% more than a two-story house with similar square footage.

The good news? Adair Homes relies on our more than 50 years of home design to modify our one-story plans with affordability in mind and no mark-up on land, ever.

This plan with four-bedrooms plus a den is our largest ranch-style home and features many ways to customize including a game room that you can build as a dual master suite. Need something bigger?
